June 2019. The samples were collected using two populations of sampling method and got 138 nurses as

samples. To analyze the effect of workload and safety communication on burnout syndrome, the researcher

used multinomial logistics.

Results: The results of Multinomial logistic test showed that workload affected the incidence of burnout

with a value of p = 0.037 and safety communication did not affect the incidence of burnout syndrome with

a value of p = 0.274.

Conclusion: Workload affected the burnout syndrome incidence, while safety communication had no

notable effect on burnout syndrome. The researcher suggests the hospitals to provide mental and physical
