I explored the impact of organizational justice on work engagement, which is a positive organizational behavior construct, and the underlying psychological mechanism. I hypothesized on the basis of a literature review that organizational justice would have a positive effect on work engagement and that psychological safety would act as a mediator. Participants comprised 254 teachers working in compulsory schools in eastern China. The survey was conducted using organizational justice, psychological safety, and work engagement scales. Data analysis showed that the 3 dimensions of organizational justice, namely, distributive, procedural, and interactional, had a positive effect on teachers’ work engagement. In addition, psychological safety played a partial mediating role in the association between organizational justice and work engagement. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed, and directions for future research are suggested.
