Abstract

There were limited studies carried out involving safety management practices and safety performance. Safety training and awareness programmes have been aggressively put into action to encourage employees’ involvement and commitment towards safety related matters yet there are still many incidents and accidents reported involving manufacturing companies. Safety management practices improve working conditions; positively influence employees’ attitudes and behaviours with regard to safety, thereby reducing accidents in workplace. This study measured employee perception on six safety management practices; management commitment, safety training, workers involvement in safety, safety communication and feedback, safety rules and procedures and safety promotion policies as the independent variables and its influences towards safety performance; safety knowledge, safety motivation, safety compliances and safety participation as dependent variables by conducting a survey using questionnaire among 60 employees of A.P.S Medical Sdn. Bhd, a single use medical disposable product manufacturer incorporated in Shah Alam, Selangor. The analysis using SPSS Version 17 software showed that some of the safety management practices have a strong and moderate relationship with the safety performance. Management commitment, Safety training, and workers involvement was safety management practice that strongly correlated and influences towards safety knowledge, safety motivation, safety compliances and safety participation. These findings provided valuable guidance for researchers and practitioners in indentifying the mechanisms by which they can improve safety at workplace
