Abstract: The study was carried out to analyze employees and students perception towards Occupational Safety and Health aspects (OSH) at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities (FSSK), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Selangor, Malaysia. Based on questionnaire technique, information was gathered from respondents about their knowledge, opinion, understanding, acceptance and awareness towards OSH aspects. By using purposive sampling technique, 250 respondents were chosen from the faculty staffs and students. Data was analysed by using simple statistical methods such as percentage and average. Analysed data was presented in the form of tables and graphs. The results showed that the mean students perception towards OSH was at the statisfactory level (3.75) as compared to the medium mean staffs perception (3.3). The result obviously showed that the level of awareness among the faculty staffs about the occupational safety and health is at the moderate scale. Training and policy factors are the two dominant factors that influence the level of awareness among the FSSH staffs on the occupational safety and health aspects. Out of 49 respondents attended the training program, 89.8% of them showed a high level of awareness towards OSH aspects.
