Author(s): Mohd Firdaus Roslan, Mohd Ridwan Abd Razak, Khairul Hafezad Abdullah, Noor Syazwani Ishak, Rakesh Dani


Safety awareness refers to an individual's ability to recognize potential hazards and take proactive measures to prevent accidents or injuries. It involves being alert to risks and hazards in the environment, and understanding the importance of following safety protocols and procedures. This study aims to explore safety awareness-related publishing patterns and rank the most used author keywords in the Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) databases. The eminent software, ScientoPy and VOSviewer, are used to run and execute relevant publication data retrieved from Scopus and WoS. The results showed a positive trend in the growth of safety awarenss literature in both databases since 1974. The top three research areas that dominate this topic are “engineering”, “public, environmental & occupational health”, and “computer science”. Based on the country analysis, China has become an active publisher, followed by United States and United Kingdom. Importantly, this study emphasised the scholarly communication practices prevalent in safety awareness research have impressively propagated. The trends will assist researchers in recognising the various fields in identifying the core areas, proactive institutions, and core source titles published in this knowledge for supplementary investigation. Besides, by examining the most popular keywords, the results of this study enable researchers to discover the possibility for future research that may be conducted, particularly concerning the annual growth rates, which have been trending in the last five years.
