In a pathology lab, several types of hazardous events occur on a regular basis and therefore, it is important to develop a risk management system so that exposure to hazards in the lab can be controlled or minimised or even eliminated. This study focuses on the awareness of biohazard handling and grossing safety among lab workers. This study aims to evaluate the level of awareness of biohazard handling and grossing safety protocol among pathology lab technicians. An online questionnaire consisting of 25 questions was circulated to participants of the pathology laboratories at various locations in India. The questions were based on the awareness of lab workers dealing with appropriate biohazards. The data was then analysed using bar graphs through SPSS software. The questionnaire based study consisted of 82 lab technicians of both males (50%) and females (50%). A high percent of pathology lab personnels had participated in this study. The results in this study evaluated and included different variables pertaining to biohazards and grossing safety protocol. The safety of employees in the lab depends on the safe operations which helps in preventing risk from biohazards of the working environment in the lab. Therefore, lab safety can be maintained with careful evaluation of all safety incidents and modification of the safety plan.
