Abstract

The occupational safety management is very essential in order to achieve sustainability at workplace. Without proper management on occupational safety, it will cause accidents to workers. As for Malaysia, those related to accidents at work has increased yearly. For example, in the year of 2003, the number of accidents involving loss of life is about 5.41% or 907 cases out of 81,003 cases to 1073 cases of death from 77,742 cases of accidents at work in the following year. As the results, it is very essential to take extra care to the occupational safety environment. A good occupational safety management will ensure the occupational safety environment is maintained properly. The occupational safety management can be divided into 2 parts. The first part is the occupational safety management through legal means and the second part is the occupational safety management through non legal approaches. Therefore, this paper will review the occupational safety environment in Malaysia as well as the existing management mechanisms to address occupational safety issues.
