Thus, this study examined the 5Cs of PYD (competence, confide...

Project
This project forms part of doctoral research which aims to contribute to the existing research literature on proactive safety behavior (PSB). The doctoral research investigates how the concept of PSB, which refers to positive self-initiated actions taken by workers to reduce the likelihood of accidents, can be applied to understand and improve safety outcomes for younger workers in a Malaysian context. The research integrates a human resources framework with contemporary theoretical perspectives on proactive behavior. It is hypothesized that proactive safety ability (PA), proactive motivation (PM) and proactive opportunity (PO) will predict proactive safety behavior (PSB) amongst younger workers. Altogether, this doctoral research comprises three studies, of which Study 1, a qualitative research of a series of in-depth interviews has been completed. Study 2 involves the development and validation of survey-based instruments designed to measure the core constructs of PA, PM, PO, and PSB. It involves collecting survey-based data from samples of undergraduate students in Perth and young workers in Malaysia. Study 3 is a longitudinal field study, designed to test a model of the causal determinants and outcomes of proactive safety behaviour. It involves using multiple survey administrations to examine the relationship between PA, PM, PO, and PSB for young workers in a Malaysian context.
