Introduction: Todays, the improvement and optimization of the safety performance are essential and important for control and prevention of accidents in the industry. The purpose of this research was to assist a hybrid cycle power plant for identification and prioritization of the influencing factors in enhancing safety in order to reduce risks and to improve system performance.  
Material and Methods: In this descriptive-analytical study, influencing factors were classified within three main categories of human, equipment, and managment, and 14 sub-factors was screened and selected by experts using Fuzzy Delphi method. Then, fuzzy DEMATEL method was adopted to determine the relationships, the intensity of affecting and being affected factors, and the analytical network process method for weighting and prioritization the factors.
Results: The findings of the fuzzy DEMATEL method showed that “Managerial”, “equipment” and “human” factors are respectively influencing factors on the improvement of safety performance. “Managerial factors” is the most influencing and “Human factors” is the most influenced one. Based on the results of fuzzy analysis network process method, “human factors” is the first priority among the main factors, and “employee motivation”, “system of control and prevention”, “work team spirit”, “individual skills” and “Individual protection equipment” sub-factors are respectively the first to fifth priorities were according to their weight.
Conclusion: “Human factors” re the most influenced factor and the main problem of the organization, which can be improved by the most influencing “managerial” factor. The success or failure of the safety performance in the power plant depends on better management of the “human factors” and managers need to motivate employees to improve safety performance.
