ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this study was to determine and describe the relationship that exists

between occupational safety and employee performance at KPRL - while being guided

by a problem statement that says; Every 20 seconds of every working minute of every

hour through the world; someone dies as a result of an industrial accident (Aswathappa,

2008). This was evidence to suggest that organizations have not achieved the required

improvement for occupational safety in their working environments. Therefore, this

triggered the researcher to go and assess the relationship between occupational safety and

employee performance.

The mam objectives of this study were to determine the relationship between

occupational safety and employee performance, to establish indicators of good safety

facilities in the working environment in accordance to law and lastly to determine the

costs avoided for having desirable working conditions in KPRL. In data collection

process, the researcher employed instruments like closed questionnaires and a structured

interview guide for primary data and extensive library research for secondary data which

were all analyzed using Microsoft word, presented in tables and bar graphs.

In as far as findings are concerned, the study found out that accidents had an effect on

employees performance, hence occupational safety was a morale booster to performing

well. The study further found out that safety outfit was used by employees when working,

there were safety facilities in the working environment in accordance to law and KPRL

had a safety policy. The study also revealed that there were arrangements for

compensation in case of an accident, subsequently KPRL incurred costs in case of an

accident. Thus, it can be recommended that KPRL should train its employees for them to be aware

of the legislation and regulations of a safe and healthy workplace, the employer should

accurately recruit and select so as to employ the right candidate to avoid unsafe acts in the work place and lastly KPRL should encourage participatory communication.
