Abstract: Safety, and health is a dynamic component need to be practiced in daily actions. The purpose of this research is to analyze the seafarer’s insight of the human element factors such as Fatigue, Attitude of Seafarers, Workplace Culture and Technical and Internal Factor contributes to the accidents while on board. The objectives of this research are to determine the main human element factor that leads to the accidents onboard and to analyze the perception of seafarers toward human element factor that contributes to accident on-board. A quantitative questionnaire survey was conducted to 300 respondents among the Malaysian seafarers which covered two sections. The Section A was for respondents’ demographic and the Section B for the accident on a board’s background. The collected data was analyzed using SPSS of Descriptive Analysis for mean and percentage, Multiple Correlations and Multiple Reliability Test. The results showed that the seafarer’s perception indicated as the main human element factor leads to an accidents onboard. The total variation of the dependent variable on the accident on-board is explained by the independent variable at 14.8%. Some recommendations are pointed out in minimizing the accidents onboard ship among the seafarers such as Refreshing Team Culture Training, Safety Weakness Monitoring and Psych Technique Test Administration.
