ABSTRACT

This paper conducts a survey of the actual status and analyze the risk level by conducting a questionnaire survey of the state of environment of research laboratories among MA and PhD graduate students in science and engineering who are engaged in research activity. In 2008, fourteen major accidents occurred, causing significant human or property damage. Due to the characteristics of university research laboratories, they are exposed to varied and complex experimental environment such as electric equipment, chemicals, gas, etc. related to experiment, and this creates many problems for managing and maintaining the safety of laboratories. The risk level is influenced by the disconformity between the objective risk of various factors and the subjective recognition, and in terms of this recognition, the characteristics of risk themselves that are inherent in various risks exert influence upon risk recognition. In respect to risk in university laboratories which are vulnerable to accidents, people engaged in research activity perceive at a lower degree the recognized level of risk due to the necessity and familiarity of everyday class in the laboratory. Further, the absence of training on risks in laboratories limits the risk information of people engaged in research activity, and thus there appears limitations of recognition capability, and such absence causes a person to overlook and pass over a range of risk factors in the laboratory which is a complex environment, and this leads to accidents. The study seeks to explore the actual state of safety awareness of people engaged in research activity based on a questionnaire on solving problems of risk factor. Moreover, the study seeks to utilize the results of research as basic data for safety management and training for laboratories.
