A Study Survey of Awareness of Jordanian Chemists about Chemical Hazards
Keywords:Awareness, chemical safety; safety perceptions; laboratory safety.
This study is an attempt to identify the level of awareness of safety measures practiced in the survey was
conducted between September and December 2020 among chemists graduated in Jordan in several working
sectors (teaching, Laboratory work and in manufactures). A total of 245 eligible subjects were asked to
participate in the study. The majority were females (71.0%), their ages ranged from 18 to 40 years, and most
of them were between 18-22 (62.9%). As for educational qualifications, 65% were students. 77.1% of them
had a good knowledge of chemistry. Most of the accidents were in the laboratory by females (68%), 78%
of the accidents were by females in the household. The age of 18-22 (58.9%) caused most of the accidents
in the laboratory. Also, the age of 18-22 (69.9%) caused most of the accidents in the household. 55.5% of
laboratory accidents were from students. As result females and students were the major reason for chemical
accidents. There is no significant difference in the average attitude towards chemical safety by age. There is
no significant difference in the average attitude towards chemical safety as per education.
