The purpose of this study is to determine the level of compliance among IPTS staff towards safety and health at the workplace. The respondents comprised of 67 academic and non-academic staff who work in faculties/ departments that use high risk equipment or substances, namely Faculty of Education, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Science Lab Department, Maintenance Department and Examination Department. Questionnaires were used as the main instrument for obtaining data for this study. The data were analyzed descriptively based on frequency, percentage and mean in order to determine the level of compliance of the respondents towards safety and health. The results showed that IPTS staff had an average level of compliance of safety and health with the overall mean score of 3.54. Aspects of safety and health studied were safety policy, safety procedures, safety equipment, safety training, safety committee and commitment as well as work environment. Finally, this study concludes that in order to raise the level of compliance towards safety and health, the University's administration should intensify the frequency of training programmes and safety and health awareness campaigns. At the same time, provide continuous or periodic safety and health programmes and tighten on the implementation of safety and health procedures may prove to be useful.
