ABSTRACT

The effects of safety performance on productivity of manufacturing industries in Nigeria were studied. Twenty manufacturing industries of which ten were large manufacturing industries and the remaining ten small manufacturing industries were sampled, and the relationship of their productivity and industrial accidents on employees between 2012 and 2016 were also studied. It was observed that large manufacturing industries tend to suffer more on this issue since most of them have zero tolerance for idle time during production process. It was observed that average level of safety compliance among the small manufacturing industries is at 55.5%, while the average level of safety compliance among the large manufacturing industries is at 70.3%. It was further observed that there is no sequential effect of these industrial accidents on productivity, but the management of such accidents explains how severe its effect can be on the productivity of these manufacturing industries. Descriptive statistical tools were used to compare the effects of accidents on productivity, and It was also observed that the average of the productivity/industrials accidents on employees in the large manufacturing industries were 7.9%/19 for NBC, 2.6%/4 for CNL, 5.3%/29 for NSS, 20.2%/13 for PBMN, 7.9%/27 for 7UP, 6.7%/22 for TNL, 7.9%/10 for ANL, 5.3%/2 for ICL, 7.9%/24 for GEOKER and 7.9%/21 for STALLION, while that of the small manufacturing industries were 5.6%/5 for SINACH, 4.4%/3 PVN, 4.4%/3 for ONYX, 5.6%/2 for BONSAC, 6.7%/4 for FPS, 6.4%/4 for S.Y. ABED, 4.8%/6 for NASON, 5.6%/3 for DOZA, 4.4%/6 for MAFO and 6.4%/2 for BEST BIE. Therefore, management of these manufacturing industries should be enlightened on the need for proper industrial accident management since industrial accidents are inevitable.
