Research data were collected using a questionnaire consisting of two researcher-made questionnaires of occupational safety and health status and standard job satisfaction questionnaire. At first, the instrument used to assess occupational safety and health status for rehabilitation centers was developed and then, with the opinion of academic experts, the validity of the instrument was confirmed using the formal credibility and content validity index and the necessary corrections were made. In addition, 5-10 staff working in rehabilitation centers were asked about the content, clarity, and simplicity of the questionnaire terms. Content Validity Index (CVI) and Content Validity Coefficient (CVC) were 0.68, 0.83, 0.69, and 0.83, respectively, for Occupational Health Management and job satisfaction. Instrument reliability was also assessed using the Cronbach's alpha coefficient, which was 0.872. Finally, after verifying the validity and reliability of the instrument, a questionnaire was used to collect the research data.
