Background: PT. Bakrie Sumatera Plantations Tbk (PT. BSP) was one of the largest rubber factories with environmental concern and a rubber exporter in Indonesia. This study aimed to analyse the assessment and influence of safety culture toward safety climate and company management at the Production Area of PT. BSP. Method: The data were collected by distributing questionnaires referring to Safety Climate Questionnaire to all workers in the production area (159 respondents). The questionnaire consisted of 41 questions/ statements in seven safety climate variables: communications and procedures, work pressure, management commitment, work relationships, training, safety rules, and safety behaviour. Result: Based on the results of the questionnaire showed 93% of all statements in the questionnaire, get a good response from respondents. This result indicates that the safety culture in PT. BSP was good. The correlation analysis showed that safety culture at PT. BSP was influenced by work pressure (r = 0.758), management commitment (r = 0.717) and training (r = 0.617). Balanced work pressure allowed workers to complete their work without haste. This condition was undoubtedly supported by the commitment of proper management that raises workers' confidence in their safety. Besides, through the implementation of training, workers could raise awareness of safety. This situation affected the safety habits that exist in PT. BSP. Nevertheless, the communication and procedures; work relationship; and safety rules variables were not yet compatible with the safety climate. Conclusions: PT. BSP should make improvements by allowing all employees to discuss and advises on occupational health and safety improvement efforts at the factory as well as provide training to their employees equally.
