Abstract

There were limited studies on safety being carried out involving the foreign worker compared to local employees. Safety trainings and awareness programmes had been aggressively put into actions to get the staffs involvement and commitment over safety yet there are still incidents and accidents at construction site involving foreign workers. This study was conducted to determine the influence of the five facets of Work Safety Scale (WSS) on compliance with safety behavior among foreign worker and their perception on safety. A total of 278 guidance questionnaires were distributed to the sample chosen on the study consisting of five independent variables of Work Safety Scale that are: (a) job safety, (b) co-worker safety, (c) supervisor safety, (d) management safety practices and (e) satisfaction of the safety programme and compliance safety behavior as the dependent variables. The result revealed the mean of WSS among the foreign workers are moderate with mean value is 3.016. Finally, the finding of the study also shows that job safety, co-worker safety, supervisor safety and management safety practices are significantly related to compliance safety behavior whilst safety programme have no any intercorrelation to safety behavior in this study.
