Abstract

Background: This study aims at determining the perception and degree of satisfaction of health personnel involve in clinical practices with respect to Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management practices, and assess the level of responses with selected OHS dimensions.

Methods: A cross sectional study was randomly performed using a validated self-administered questionnaire among health personnel involve with clinical hospital based practices.

Results: A total of 152 personnel took part in the study. Female (118, 77.6%) respondents were more represented in the study than men (34, 22.4%) with Mean (SD) age of 35.7 ± 8.64 years. Training and competence was perceived highest with (Mean SD, 4.14 ± 0.58) and safety goals perceived the least with (Mean SD, 2.31 ± 1.06). The study showed there was no significant effect for neither duration of service nor job position (<10 years of service Mean (SD) 2.62 ± 0.40, p>0.05 and the nurses with Mean (SD) 2.60 ± 0.41, p>0.05). Correlation analysis showed a significant correlation between OHS dimensions and safety satisfaction and feedback.

Conclusion: Generally, health personnel perceived OHS dimension very low. In this study it is evident that health facilities need to step up OHS practices as well as an inclusive and committed management and supervisory skills, based on the significant correlation between some OHS dimensions and safety satisfaction and feedback among the personnel.
