This research examined the perception of employees regarding the management of occupational health and safety (OHS) in public hospital. 418 employees from three state hospitals in the northern region of Malaysia participated in this study. Data was collected using a set of questionnaires. Data analysis was done using descriptive statistics, t-test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson correlation and multiple regressions. Findings showed that employees perceived safety reporting as the most important dimension and work pressure as the least important component in their OHS practices. Empirical evidence indicated that there was no significant difference in safety satisfaction and feedback between male and female workers but there was a significant difference in safety involvement dimension. In addition, results also showed that there was a significant difference in safety satisfaction and feedback faced by job position like nurse but there was no significant difference between employees from all categories of job tenure. Findings suggested that there was a significant positive correlation between dependent variable and all independent variables. Regression analysis revealed approximately 55% (R 2 = 0.545) of variance in safety satisfaction and feedback, that was simultaneously explained by five independent variables including safety involvement, safety reporting, work pressure, management commitment, and safety objectives. In sum, this study has confirmed an empirical relationship between the nine dimensions of OHS management and the outcome variable.
