    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The study tested a model of the antecedents and consequences
    of organizational justice among Ghanaian industrial workers (N = 320).
    Justice perceptions were examined in terms of their socio-cultural properties
    and demographic variables. These variables were examined in terms of their
    impact as antecedents and consequences of justice evaluations.
    Antecedents comprised work-related and personal characteristics.
    Consequences comprised perceived organizational support, organizational
    citizenship behavior, organizational safety climate, safety behavior, and
    accident frequency. Multiple regression analyses were conducted to test the
    hypotheses. Mplus-7 indicated a partial mediation effect in a multimediation
    model. Work-related variables strongly and positively correlated
    with organizational justice, and were generally better predictors of
    organizational justice than were personal characteristics. The results have
    implications to organizational behavior.
