Risk assessment in postgraduate laboratories.

Chemistry laboratories in colleges or research centres in Iraqi universities are been widely used by both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Those institutes worked actively in reporting lab accidents and applying various procedures to improve the safety measures at these sites. In addition to many workshops was carried out to raise the awareness and encourage staff and students to apply safety standards and health conditions. This research is part of a series of studies that describe the status of laboratories, accidents, and laboratory improvements. This study summarizes the unsafe practices through monitoring the improper installation of equipment’s and chemicals usage in one of the postgraduate laboratories in the chemistry department of an Iraqi university which can lead to many complications in the future. This research aims to reduce irregularities for a better workplace environment in other universities.
