Abstract

There are limited research and studies been carried out involving Safety Management Practices and Safety Behaviour. Safety awareness programs have been actively conducted to inspire employees’ involvement and commitment toward safety, however there are still many accidents and incidents reported involving manufacturing firms. Safety management practices improve working conditions, employees’ safety motivation and behavior which in turn will reduce the accidents in workplace. This study measured employee perception on six safety management practices; management commitment, safety training, worker’s involvement in safety, safety communication and feedback, safety rules and procedures and safety promotion and policies as the independent as the independent variables and its relationship towards safety behavior; safety compliances and safety participation as dependent variables by conducting a survey using questionnaire among 360 employees of one automotive company in Malaysia. The analysis using SPSS Version 19 software showed that some of the safety management practices have a strong relationship with the safety behavior. Management commitment, safety training and workers’ involvement were the safety management practices that highly correlate the safety compliances and safety participation. These results provided valuable guidance for scholars and practitioners in identifying the method where they can improve safety at the workplace
