Methods: From the perspective of staff, the coefficient between the variables of employees’ loyalty to the organization and the components of organizational commitment, organizational support and condition, financial benefits and independence and autonomy were 0.412 and 0.192, 0.466 and 0.321, respectively, which shows a significant relationship between staff loyalty to the organization and the mentioned components. From the managers’ perspective, the coefficients between employees’ loyalty to the organization and the components of organizational commitment, organizational support and also job-organizational conditions were 0.261, 0.464 and 0.442, respectively, which indicates a significant relationship between the loyalty of employees and the mentioned components.
Results: Among 159 people died, 69% were girls and 31% were boys. The most kind of accidents occurred to them were injury (39.67%), poisoning (20.56%), and falling (15.11%). Accidents range was higher among girls and among 3-4-year-old children. Age, Sex, and season of death did not have any correlation with the kind of accident however there was a significant correlation between accidents occurred amongunder-5-year-old children and their season of death.
