Aims: Increasing staff awareness in the workplace can reduce the damage caused by natural disasters and emergencies. The aim of this study was developing a valid and reliable tool to measure the level of the public awareness on emergency response and assess this in Iran dairy industry. Materials and Methods: The awareness level was assessed by constructing a researcher-made questionnaire. A 62-item questionnaire was provided. After face validation, content validity was assessed using content validity ratio and content validity index method and finally 56 final questions were prepared. The construct validity of the questionnaire was assessed using Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO) index test and Bartlett's sphericity test. To assess the reliability of the questionnaire, it was investigated on 425 Iran Dairy industry staff using Richardson Kouder 20 test. Principal factors were extracted using exploratory factor analysis by analysis of variance method by SPSS version 22. Results: The KMO index was 0.331, so factor analysis was not possible. Bartlett's sphericity test also showed P < 0.001, and confirmation was successful. The reliability coefficient of the questionnaire by using Richardson's Kouder 20 test was 0.711. The public awareness on emergency response in Iran dairy industry staff was evaluated as moderate to optimal. Conclusion: The public awareness on emergency response in the workplace questionnaire which has been designed has appropriate validity and reliability and can be used to assess public awareness on emergency response in the workplace.
