Introduction: Success and profitability of an organization as a social system depends on the effective use of human resources. Job satisfaction is one of the most important issues related to the human resources in the organization and has long been the focus of attention in organizational studies. Although existing studies have identified a number of factors affecting job satisfaction,, few studies have evaluated the status of Occupational Health And Safety (OHS) management and job satisfaction in Iran. Employees are exposed to various work-related hazards and crises. Hence, attention to various environmental threats and control of occupational safety and health risks should be considered as one of the major and indispensable goals of the organization. In this regard, the purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between OHS management and job satisfaction among employees of nongovernmental rehabilitation centers under the supervision of the Welfare Organization in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province using crisis management approach.
Methods: This descriptive-correlatonal study was carried out on 220 employees of non-governmental rehabilitation centers in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad who were selected using the census sampling method. Data collection tools were the Persian version of the Job Descriptive Index instrument and a researcher-made questionnaire in Persian for assessment of OHS management which have acceptable validity based on by the opinion of several academic experts, and good reliability  based on the value of Cronbach’s alpha coefficient. Data were analyzed in SPSS v.20 software at a significant level of p<0.05 using independent t-test, linear regression analysis and Pearson correlation test.
Results: Findings showed that there was a significant relationship between OHS management in nongovernmental rehabilitation centers and their employees' job satisfaction (p<0.05). In general, the OHS management and job satisfaction in these centers were at a moderate level.
Conclusion: The job satisfaction level of the employees and the OHS managment of the nongovernmental rehabilitation centers in in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad need to be improved. Also, since the OHS management of the workplace is one of the important indicators of crisis management and safety during emergencies, it is therefore necessary to implement effective management measures to optimize the assessment of OHS performance in the framework of crisis management and risk reduction in organizations.
