Background: Risk perception and employeeschr('39') attitudes towards safety is one of the requirements for establishing safety culture and having a safer working environment. If the attitude of employees to safety can be improved and accomplished, their safety performance will also be improved. So, to achieve an appropriate working environment, it is necessary to measure a personchr('39')s perception of safety. The current study aims to explore the relationship between attitudes and safety performance among employees of the cement factory in Fars Province in Iran. Methods: The present study is sectional analytical research, which was conducted among employees of the cement factory in the south of Iran in 2018. The required information was collected through the attitude questionnaire and safety performance. Finally, 130 questionnaires were completed. The data analysis was carried out through the SPSS software version 24 by using Kruskal–Wallis tests and man Whitney tests. Results: The mean safety attitude was determined by 3.85(0.28). According to the results, there is no significant relationship between the level of safety attitude with age (P=0.32), the degree of education (P=0.36), work experience (P=0.52), accident numbers (P=0.47) and also the education (P=0.320). On the other hand, the safety attitude showed a significant relationship with safety performance (P=0.001).  Conclusion: According to the results of the study and the significant relation between the safety attitude and performance, functional improvements in employeechr('39')s safety attitudes could be achieved by planning and taking occupational health preventive measures.
