dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to assess safety awareness among laboratory personnel. The research group, which consisted of 84 subjects (88.4% of 95 persons contacted), completed a questionnaire. Of the study population, 55.9% were male and 44.1% were female. On the subject of how to receive samples, 70.2% of the study group knew the correct answer. In all, 90.5% and 79.8%, respectively, knew what procedures should be followed after injuries or accidents occurred in the laboratory. The lowest number of correct responses on the questionnaire was associated with the topic of waste disposal. Results of this study show that laboratory personnel would benefit greatly from educational initiatives designed to promote laboratory safety.
