PUBLICATION TRENDS AND THEMATIC EVOLUTION OF SAFETY MOTIVATION RESEARCH: A BIBLIOMETRIC REVIEW
Authors: Khairul Hafezad Abdullah
Abstract: Safety motivation is essential for a well-functioning Total Quality Management (TQM) program. Several studies on safety motivation have been published; however, the bibliometric review remains deficient. This review aims to discuss the bibliometric and thematic development of safety motivation research using the Scopus database. The graphical visualisation of the bibliometric indicators using VOSviewer is presented to describe publication trends. SciMAT was used to inspect the thematic evolution of safety motivation research. Safety motivation research has fluctuated with less than 30 publications annually. This review is interested in several themes and dimensions in changes and evolution of safety motivation. Essential themes in the first period (2001-2010) were "questionnaire", "aged" and "occupational hazards". The "human" theme became the most significant number of publications and citations during the second period (2011-2020). These themes may be useful as a reference point for occupational safety and health researchers and professionals interested in safety motivation research.
Keywords: Publication Trends, Thematic Evolution, Occupational Hazards, Total Quality Management, Research Performance.
