Limited studies have been carries out involving safety management practices and safety behaviour. Safety training and awareness programmes have been aggressively put into action to encourage employees’ involvement and commitment towards safety related matters however, there are still many incidents and accidents in the construction industry. This study measured employees perceptions in six safety management practices (management commitment, safety training, workers involvement in safety, communication and feedback, rules and procedures and safety policies) and its influences towards safety behaviour, safety compliances and safety participation as using information from 130 workers in the construction industry in Klang Valley. The analysis used SPSS Version 23 software indicating that some of the safety management practices have a strong relationship with safety behaviour. The result of this study provided valuable guidance for researchers and practitioners in identifying the mechanisms by which they can improve safety in the workplace.
