Title:
Perceived Organizational Support as a Mediator between Social Exchange and Upward Safety Communication

Abstract:
using 213 survey data, we examined how relational exchange quality, perceived organizational support (POS), and upward safety communication interrelate. We found POS mediates the relationship between leader-member exchange (i.e., LMX) and upward safety communication. We also found the relational context matters—namely, the management commitment to safety (i.e., MCS). Our findings suggest higher quality MCS reduces the negative association between lower quality LMX and POS. Our study extends both social exchange and safety management theories. We delineate how relational exchange quality associates with employees upward safety communication in the organization—placing POS as an integrative mechanism between social exchange and communication.
