Track: Occupational Safety and Health (OSH)

This study aims to identify safety and health related hazards within a selected electronics manufacturing organization in Malaysia as well as to perform risk evaluation based on the hazards identified. The standard operating practices, accident records, computer operating manuals, and expert judgments were used to recognize the said hazards. The AHP Methodology was utilized to perform the risk analysis and render the correct judgment by considering both qualitative and quantitative aspects of the analysis. For this analysis, the quantitative score of Saaty's AHP (1-9) scale was used. Experts provided their scores through a structured questionnaire, and the scores were then revised and improved further via online interviews. The identified hazards were analysed using pairwise comparisons against the three main criteria of this study which were severity, probability of occurrence, and cost to avoid. In this study, the selected organization recognized a total of six hazards. The AHP Methodology was computed using BPMSG tools, which provided the researcher with accurate and effective results. This case study's findings can be adapted as a guide for the organization to continuously improve on its workplace safety and health practices.
