Objective: This study explores the structural distinctiveness of safety, health, and stress prevention climate scales and examines whether these measures predict safety, physical health, and mental health outcomes over time. Methods: We obtained samples of university students, Amazon Mechanical Turk workers, and firefighters to assess the dimensionality of the three climate foci, and provide content, construct, and criterion validity of the three measures. Results: Findings from our study suggest that the constructs of safety, health, and stress prevention climate are psychometrically distinct, as well as demonstrate content, construct, and criterion validity evidence. Conclusion: This study provides preliminary evidence for integrating the constructs of safety, health, and stress prevention climate in the TotalWorker HealthTM framework for predicting safety-, health-, and stressrelated outcomes.
