Problem: The purpose of this synthesis is to determine the safety attitudes in working places
because workers' view of individual and collective safety is key to managing workplace injuries
and cutting down unnecessary extra expenses emanating from preventable causes. Based on
research and analysis, worker's attitudes towards safety rules, measures, and procedures have to
be perfectly aligned to the goal of an organization to help minimize inputs and ensure that
potential output is maximized. Method: a safety attitude questionnaire developed and
administered to a sample of workers working in different organizations regarding how versed
they were with safety plans and policies of the organization, how they viewed them and how
well each individual was capable of implementing the safety procedures in case there was a need.
The total number of questionnaires administered was 50: 30 males and 20 females were engaged
in the exercise. All of them were returned, but two were invalid and thus not fit for the analysis;
hence, the report based on 48 questionnaires. Results: safety attitudes at the workplace were not
taken seriously as compared to production, cost-effectiveness, and efficiency, workers in most
instances denied that the management was keen on implementing safety measures and that they
only relied majorly on safety control standards as stipulated for any organization by federal laws.
Training on safety precautions was minimal, and personal obligation directed towards its
benefits. This practically influenced the respondents attitude towards safety measures and
policies in that if the management did not care as much, then this was not part of their job
description nor were they obligated to any such plans and conclusively, every individual
respondent preferred just to be concerned about their safety, being careful to the best of their
knowledge and in the hope that a well started day at work would as well end well.



Positive safety attitudes are necessary because the human factors, including personality, values,
and beliefs, are always part of who we are and what we bring to work. Our attitudes influence
our behavior, and therefore the identification of views that are a potential barrier to working
safely is essential (Lucidi, Girelli, Chirico, Alivernini, Cozzolino, Violani, & Mallia, 2019).
Safety attitudes are mostly pinned to working places though broadly, it can be defined to include
all areas which demand extra care to be taken to ensure the wellbeing of the individual.
Specifically, workplace safety refers to the employee's tendency to respond positively or
negatively towards a safety goal, idea, plan, procedure, prevention, or situation.
To a greater sense, safety attitudes impact on employee choice of actions and response to
challenges, incentives, and rewards in the workplace. Positive inclinations to safety attitudes are
essential for a healthy-acc...
