ABSTRACT

Abstract- The level of safety awareness in private and government oil and gas related analytical laboratories in Warri was appraised. The study was carried out with the aid of a standardized checklist adapted from guidelines for laboratory safety. The result showed that there is correlation between the level of safety performance and the safety climate in the laboratory. Also, the level of safety performance in the private laboratories were more satisfactory compared with government laboratories. The need for effective integrated management of occupational health and safety in the laboratory is suggested.
