The construction industry can be defined as a unique, sophisticated, and hazardous working environment (Mohammadi et al., 2018). To ensure the rate of fatalities in the construction sector is under control by comprehensive safety measures, DOSH Malaysia has been implemented Prevention through Design (PtD) through new guidelines OSHCI in early of 2017. As the former chairman of NIOSH said during the press conference, the fatalities rate per 100,000 workers employed in 2018 is 13.44, which is better than 14.57 in 2017 (Babulal, 2020). However, in the view of Ir. Haji Omar, there remains a gap in the awareness of safety practices compare to other developing countries (H Omar, 2018). From the result obtained from the previous article, there is a lack of PtD concept understanding among the majority of the respondents from Civil and Structural Engineers (Che Ibrahim & Belayutham, 2020). Therefore, this writing research is focused on academic readiness for PtD to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) as early education, bachelor degree is required as a key of push factor to implement PtD in Malaysia in the mature stage. This paper also determines the importance of PtD in Malaysia and examine the relationship of PtD to OSH awareness. Quantitative survey and literature review will be conducted to achieve the objectives in this research. Throughout this research, it able to contribute to society and Higher Educational Institution to promote PtD Education as an alternative way to minimise the construction fatality in Malaysia.
