Abstract: There are companies who do not focus much on the health and safety measures of the employees, because of which there are higher rates of accidents or injuries which leads to lower productivity of employees and dissatisfaction in the job. Thus, the present study was being conducted to determine the relationship of employee's perception on health and safety measures and its influence on job performance. Further, the role of job satisfaction as a mediator is being explored. The study was being conducted among 167 respondents in two manufacturing companies in Kerala, India. The data analysed using principal component analysis, correlation, and regression. The study showed a strong influence of employee's perception on health and safety measure towards job satisfaction and employee performance and a mediating effect of job satisfaction was also evident.
