Summary OBJECTIVE: The study examined the relationship of occupational safety with job burnout. DESIGN: The study used a cross-sectional survey design.

SETTING: The setting was Nova Scotia, Canada.

PARTICIPANTS: Mobile health employees (N = 156) completed surveys on road safety, workload, burnout and supervisor incivility.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: The main outcome measure was the Maslach Burnout Inventory.

RESULTS: Results found that safety concerns improved the prediction of exhaustion beyond that provided by workload concerns alone. Further, confidence in safety buffered the relationship of exhaustion with cynicism such that the exhaustion/cynicism relationship was stronger for employees who had lower confidence in road safety.

CONCLUSIONS: Employees' confidence in occupational safety while addressing work responsibilities on the road has implications for their experience of job burnout.
