Workplace safety is the utmost target for operations since unsafely working may cause losses of lives and assets as well as have an effect on the environment and employee’s health. Therefore, creating a work safety culture to proactively prevent accidents must be carried out and improve continuously for example, creating a safe working environment, establishing clear preventive measures, evaluating performances, promoting knowledges and raising awareness, as well as drawing participations from all employees and stakeholders.
The safe workplace environment is counted as the human rights of which employees, contractors and those working in the areas should get sufficiently and equally. In addition, promoting employee participation in expressing their ideas to improve their workplace environment will finally help in creating their contributions, encouragements, and engagements with the organizations.
