    • Authors: Abdulaziz J. Alshalani, Khaled F. Salama
      Pages: 1 - 23
      Abstract: Background: workers in laboratories are faced with many occupational risks at work and their health and safety may be severely jeopardized if adequate preventive protective measures are not taken. Objectives: to assess the level of occupational safety practices among laboratory staff in governmental hospitals in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Method: It was a cross sectional descriptive study among 107 laboratory staff, and 28 labs. Data was collected by a self-administered validated structured questionnaire and observation checklist, which were developed, and validated by us using guidelines on universal work precautions and based on previous studies. Results: Overall, there was a positive knowledge of, and attitude towards, occupational safety practices among medical laboratory staff. Nationality and age group were the only two variables that were significantly correlated with occupational safety practices. Almost of the occupational safety practices subscales were followed in the assessed subscales, except for certain parameters including mainly personal protective equipment’s and electrical safety. Conclusion: Overall, a positive knowledge of, and attitude towards, occupational safety practices among medical laboratory staff was reported.

  • Owner Project Safety Leadership and Explosives Management in a
           Construction Project in Kashmir

    • Authors: Paul James
      Pages: 24 - 43
      Abstract: This is research is focused on the evaluation of Owner Engineer perceptions and its impacts on Explosives management practices and developments related to an Engineering, Procurement and Construction Contract (EPC) Tunnel Construction Project in Kashmir using an interpretive methodology.The scope for this research was the Owner engineer project team. The population of interest was made up of 13 senior engineers, encompassing a multi-site EPC Tunnel Construction Project. Eleven (11) senior engineers were carefully targeted as a designed sample size.The research outcomes consisted of three (3) Main Themes - Site Safety; Explosives Management and Security Issues and fourteen (14) sub-themes, with 387 dialogue targets.The paper addresses a variety of major issues resulting from the analysis of narrative data relating to Owner project safety leaderships and raises determinations of the implications for managing safety at the project sites and in the wider community.

  • Safety Climate and Culture Review: A Case Study of Water and Power Project

    • Authors: Badr Almalki, Adel Zakaria, Mansour A. Balkhyour, Ijaz Ahmad
      Pages: 44 - 55
      Abstract: Systematic management of occupational safety and health (OSH) issues requires attention in many aspects like regulatory, technical, organizational and managerial. Approaching OSH from an organizational culture perspective can also facilitate achieving sustainable improvements in organizational OSH performance. OSH culture helps in seeing and organizing safety from different perspectives and should not be reduced to a matter of culture only. The knowledge, information and data gathered is expected to be very useful in the process of improving OSH-related procedures, practices and policies, eventually leading to enhanced OSH performance. This paper attempts to describe a cultural approach towards understanding organizational OSH. It will help the readers, professionals, authorities, and policy makers in understanding OSH from a cultural point of view, and how to assess this OSH culture as part of the of organizational improvement process. The aim is to disseminate latest information on this complex topic, trying to build a bridge between practice and research. The scientific literature shows these two terms, safety climate and safety culture, are often interchangeable, but they are distinct but related concepts. The word "safety culture" is a complex and persistent feature reflecting fundamental assumptions, expectations, norms and values, which are also represented by societal culture while "safety climate" best pronounces attitudes, beliefs, and perceptions of employees classically measured by surveys and observations. Safety culture measurement requires detailed investigation of how members in an organization interact to form a shared view of safety. This paper explores the ideas of an organization’s safety climate and culture for the purpose of determining which is more advantageous for accurately describing a "state of safety”. Preliminary results of a case study from a water and power project from Saudi Arabia has been added.
