Highlights • The study compares crew members on Norwegian and Greek cargo vessels and passenger vessels. • The study examines the influence of national safety culture, sector safety focus and organizational safety culture on (three types of) safety behaviours, compared with other variables. • The study examines the influence of safety behaviours and other factors on occupational injuries. • Organizational factors like demanding working conditions and organizational safety culture are the most important predictors of Risk acceptance/violations and Non-intervention/non-reporting. • National safety culture is the most important predictor of respondents’ tendency to work under the influence of alcohol/hungover. • Respondents’ occupational injuries are influenced by Risk acceptance/violations, nationality and age. • The study indicates that safety culture at different analytical levels, influence different types of unsafe behaviours, which in turn influence the risk of work injuries. • The study indicates that it is important to study safety culture at different analytical levels (i.e. the national, sectorial and organizational), to fully understand the influence of culture on safety in transport.
