Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the occupational accidents and injuries towards the staff at an Automotive Industrial Plant (AIP). Focusing on the population of 266 local staff, a total of 157 respondents participated in this study using self-administered questionnaires. The researchers used simple random sampling method in order to select the respondents. In order to measure the relationships with the occupational accidents and injuries, three independent variables were selected concerning employee's behavior, management commitment and the working environment. Four objectives were achieved and five hypotheses were tested. T-test analysis showed that the nature of technical and non-technical works had no difference in perceptions towards the occupational accidents and injuries at the selected AIP. However the staff perceived that employees' behavior was the most influential factor that leads to the accidents in organization since it had the lowest value of standard deviation for the descriptive analysis. This perception was proven from the highest Beta value of 0.373 as compared to the value for management commitment and working environment by using multiple regression analysis.
