Introduction: Industrial safety is an important issue that should be considered as a priority in the safety culture of companies. Given that the most of working accidents are arose from insecure perceptions and behaviors, it is necessary to conduct more researches in this field. The current study aimed to assess employees' perceptions of safety culture in Bahonar Copper Industries Co. using the health belief model (HBM). Materials & Methods: The current study was a descriptive cross-sectional study. All employees working in the rolling mill and steel parts manufacturing plant comprised the statistical population of the study. After preparing an appropriate questionnaire and confirming its validity and reliability, and also according to a pilot study, 215 subjects were determined for the study through statistical consultation. Gathered data were analyzed by SPSS software (version 16). Findings: In this study, most of the employees had under diploma degrees (53 %) and the highest frequency of age groups was 34 to 40 years (57 people). 9.81 percent of them were married and 43.7 percent had over 16 years work experience. In this study, 79.5 % of the employees had a moderate perception and 10.3 % of them had a good perception toward the safety at work. Most participants were from the rolling mill and copper tube plant (28.4 %). Also, 5.39% of employees had a history of job-related accidents. In this study, 54.9 % of participants were averagely satisfied with their jobs. Finally, chi-square test showed a significant association between HBM constructs such as perceived susceptibility and occupation, work unit or work injury. Discussion &Conclusion: The employees had a relatively good attitude toward the safety at workplace. Since workers are vulnerable employees at workplaces, execution of educational and interventional programs using health belief model or other educational models is recommended to enhance the perception of workers to adhere to safety principals at workplaces
