Abstract

Background and purpose: The aim of the research is the effective factors on the health, safety and environment (HSE) risk literacy promotion model. Organizations cannot function without healthy and safe employees. Health literacy deals with the issue of whether a person meets the complex requirements of promoting and maintaining health in modern society.

Research method: the researcher has analyzed the results and findings of previous researchers by applying a systematic and meta synthesis approach and by performing the 7 steps of the Sandelovski and Barroso method, he has identified the effective factors. Among 556 articles, 55 articles were selected based on the CASP method, and the validity of the analysis was confirmed with the Kappa coefficient value of 0.711. In this context, in order to measure reliability and quality control, the transcription method was used, and its value was identified for the indicators identified at the level of excellent agreement. The results of data analysis collected in MAXQDA software led to the identification of 84 primary codes in 16 categories in 5 dimensions.

Findings: Finally, five dimensions of planning, concepts of literacy development, implementation of education, evaluation and revision were identified as influencing dimensions of health, safety and environmental risk literacy.

Conclusion: Organizations can focus on these factors in order to improve the literacy of HSE risks as one of the preventive and improving decision-making factors among their employees. What can be inferred from the categories and dimensions is the impossibility of balanced and proportional promotion of HSE risk literacy in an organization by one person and one department and even the organization itself alone. Improving the literacy of HSE risks requires the attention and assistance of extra-organizational, organizational and individual factors.
