Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to examine the effect of safety behavior as a moderator on the relationship between teamwork and safety performance. The respondents for this study are 235 technical workers from Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd, a heavy industry company in Pasir Gudang Johor. A set of questionnaire that consists of four sections namely section A (demographic), section B (teamwork), section C (safety behavior) and section D (safety performance) is distributed to collect the data used for this study. After that, the data is analyzed using descriptive analysis (mean and percentage) and inferential analysis (multiple regression and hierarchical regression). The results of the study present that the level of teamwork, safety behavior and safety performance in Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE) are high. The findings also demonstrate that the most influencing teamwork dimension is role clarity. In addition, the results also reveal that safety behavior does not moderate the relationship between teamwork and safety performance but only as a predictor. Some recommendations are pointed out in this study for the organization (MMHE), technical workers in MMHE and further researchers.
