of hazard assessment data due to system failure that causes accidents. There is lack of
equipment, material and clothing for occupational health safety. Finally, the study concludes that
those employees have a safe place of employment. Employees have a safe means of access to
work. Employees are not aware of compensation in case an accident occurs at the place of
work.Employees do not know their legal rights concerning occupational health. The study
recommends that employer should provide safe working environment since feeling safe at work
ranks as a very important factor in job satisfaction. Part of the employer’s social responsibilities
toward employees, of necessity, should encompass industrial workers being given opportunities
to participate in periodic workshops, seminars and lectures to sharpen their awareness on safety
precautions. Every workplace should demonstrate respect for the natural environment and
occupiers should work towards achieving the goals of no accidents, no harm to people and no
damage to the environment. Employers should take it as their responsibility to ensure the
working environment is safe.
