Environmental evaluation is a topic often focusing onto office buildings, public or private utilities, but not on industrial facilities. This paper deals with the issue of environmental evaluation in industrial contexts. Its aim is to highlight and discuss it in relation to industrial safety, by focusing on the particular case of the burr work setting of the iron-steel foundries, which is an unsafe industrial environment. Results show that environmental evaluation of these particular industrial contexts cannot be considered biased by the individual number of accidents, or biased by perceived job performance. Conversely, some reciprocal influences can be considered between POE and organisational satisfaction, on the one hand, and social climate, on the other hand, the latter only for the low-accident rate context. Conclusions stress the importance of environmental evaluations like post-occupancy evaluations (POE) so as to improve people-environment compatibility at work and to enhance industrial safety.
