The second questionnaire has 64 statements for the estimate of 16 components of the enterprise safety culture. Using a single-factor dispersion analysis the mathematical processing of the questionnaire results was conducted for 614 employees, and the dependence was identified between the social and biographical characteristics of the employees and the components of safety culture estimated by them. In addition, the histogram was built related the values of average estimates of safety culture components. Through the cluster analysis, all the questioned specialists were divided into 3 clusters: 44.3 % estimated safety culture at the average level, 30.94 % — at a high level, 24.76 % — at the low level.
