Stadiums are competition areas that host thousands of spectators. State and private security personnel are assigned to take precautions against all kinds of dangers that may occur in and around the stadium. The fact that the assigned security personnel do not fulfill the job description or behave illegally during the match means that thousands of people risk their lives and property. The aim of this study; to examine the relationship between the occupational safety awareness, safe behaviors and work motivations of the security personnel working in the stadiums. Data, in the year 2022; it was collected face to face by 4 pollsters in 12 different competitions held at NEF, Şükrü Saraçoğlu, Ülker Fenerbahçe and Vodafone Park stadiums. Our sample group consists of 215 stadium security personnel who voluntarily participated in the research. Relational screening method was used in the research. A total of 3 scales were used as data collection tools. The first scale is the single factor “Occupational Safety Awareness” scale. The second scale is the “Safe Behavior” scale. It consists of two sub-dimensions, security compliance and security participation. The third scale is the "Multidimensional Job Motivation" scale. It consists of a total of 6 sub-factors, namely, non-motivation, external regulation-social, external regulation-material, personal regulation, intrinsic motivation and introjected regulation. Since the data do not show a normal distribution; Non-parametric inverses such as Kruskal Wallis test, Mann Whitney U test and Spearman's Correlason were used. Conclusion: As the safe behavior scores of the stadium security personnel increase, the occupational safety awareness also increases. However, it is seen that the safe behavior scores of the participants decrease as work motivation and working time increase. In addition, it has been determined that occupational safety awareness reduces work motivation.
