Abstract

In high-risk hazardous organizations, workers face occupational accidents and safety challenges. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of management commitment to safety and safety training on occupational accidents via safety compliance in the context of the oil and gas industry of Malaysia. The sample size was calculated by employing G-Power version 3.1, and 194 responses were collected by using the convenience sampling technique and Smart-PLS was used for data analysis. Hence, on the basis of data analysis, developed hypotheses have been accepted. In addition, this study is also helpful for managers and safety leaders to understand the importance of management commitment to safety and safety training to reduce the rate of occupation accidents. In the future, this study can be conducted with large sample size, and variables safety participation, safety behavior, and workers’ involvement can be added to develop a theoretical framework.
