Main Article Content



Safety and health design is a risk managing technique widely used in many industries, such as manufacturing, construction, chemical, marine, and healthcare. This method is also considered a prevention measure through design. It can be used to design or redesign a process, product, or workplace, taking into account the safety and health of workers and people at the workplace. This paper identified and analyses the criteria for safety and health in design implementation using the factor analysis procedure. The research partners were 117 who involved in design and manufacture of the product such as machinery and workplace. The result showed that 25 has been identified as criteria for safety and health in design implementation. Ten criteria included in OSH Management component and the other 15 categorized as operational management.
