Abstract
The high rate of work accidents in East Java is mainly due to human factor, in this case, related to the low level of workers’ attitudes towards the priority of work safety (MKK/Memprioritaskan Keselamatan Kerja). Theoretically, work safety training (PKK / Pelatihan Keselamatan Kerja) is able to improve the workers’ attitude. This research intends to seek whether work safety training can equally influence the small, medium and large scale industries. The workers in industries in East Java are mostly the population with low level of education. In turn, the research found the significant effect of PKK on the improvement of the workers attitude but only at large scale industries. Whereas, this effect was not significant on the small and medium scale industries. Though the workers in small and medium scale industries have obtained the safety knowledge from work safety training, their attitude on safety did not increase as they have found a threat to apply their knowledge in their industries such as management system, facilities, working environment, and norms. Hence, based upon this finding, we suggest to the Manpower Ministry and other institution organizing the work safety training to pay more attention to small and medium scale industries. Also, the work safety training in small and middle scale industries should be followed with an additional supervision such as managerial system, safety environment, and safety norms.
