Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the importance of OSH practices and its relation with OSH knowledge, OSH needs, and OSH improvement needs among the cleaning workers in the Township Cleaning Service Department. 120 were randomly selected to be the respondents of this study. Data was collected through questionnaire and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS version 19.0). The instrument was tested for correlation and regression. Results showed that there was a positive relationship between OSH knowledge, OSH needs, and OSH improvement needs with OSH practices. Regression analysis showed that only OSH knowledge has a significant influence with OSH practices. Generally, it is essential for managers and cleaning workers to take a more proactive move in developing and sustaining OSH practices in the workplace.
