Abstract

This study aims to investigate the correlation between behaviour-based safety (BBS) and chosen demographic characteristics with a safe workplace. The samples of this study involved staff at PPES Works (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd. Questionnaires were used to obtain feedback from a total of 40 respondents who were selected using the random sampling method. The information obtained includes the respondents' background, behaviourbased safety factors (person-based psychology and social psychology) as well as safe workplace. Eight hypotheses were developed and tested in this record using the descriptive statistics (frequency, percentage and mean) and inferential statistics (Independent Sample t-tests; One-Way ANOVA and Pearson Correlation Coefficient), to see whether there is any relationship between the dependent variables and the independent variables. The dependent variable in this study is a safe workplace (which includes stress, accidents and injuries) while the independent variable is behaviour-based safety. The result indicated that there is no significant relationship between behaviourbased safety with a safe workplace. The study recommended that future researchers are encouraged to conduct a more in-depth study in order to obtain more reliable result. Organisation must continue to improve and enhance its practice on safety and health by implementing BBS program apart from the already available safety and health practices at the workplace. Overall, the findings of this study will provide valuable information to the employees, safety and health officer in particular and future researchers who have the interest in Occupational Safety and Health studies.
