Introduction: Poor safety culture accounts for the majority of occupational accidents which occur as a result of unsafe behaviors. However, establishing safety culture without job satisfaction is doomed to fail. The present research aimed to investigate the relationship between safety Culture and job Satisfaction in employees of a company in Bandar Abbas Shahid Rajaee port.

The data collection instruments were valid and reliable safety culture and job satisfaction questionnaires. Data were analyzed using SPSS software and Pearson correlation coefficient test.
Results: The mean age of the participants was 37.58 years. Results show that there is a statistically significant correlation between safety culture and job satisfaction (r=0.424, P-value˂0.001). Among the safety culture dimensions, teaching and learning (r=0.419, P-value˂0.001) and responsibility (r=0.410, P-value˂0.001) had the highest correlations with the job satisfaction.
