BEST PRACTICES OF OSH COMPLIANCE IN THE SME MELAKA MANUFACTURING SECTORS
AbstractImplementation OSH is important in any workplace. This study is focusing on SME Melaka manufacturing sector and in this paper we would like to include the compliance practice as a new parameter in order to improve the number of percentage of an accident in the workplace. There are four components such as understanding; commitment, practice and behavior influence on the improvement of reducing accident case in the workplace towards regulatory compliance. Primary data from 20 S & M manufacturing sector in Melaka was taken to analyse the compliance practices through phone call interview survey. From the analysis, we found that good compliance will reduce accident cases at the workplace. This research highpoints the problems in the Melaka manufacturing sector such the high occupational accidents which are due to the lack of non-compliance of the requirements of Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) 1994, Guided Self Regulation Environmental Mainstream Tools (EMT). This study is to promote the practice of OSH at Small and Medium Melaka manufacturing sector through several management practices such as training and safety management, understanding of self-regulation, enforcement and auditing towards compliance practices.
