BACKGROUND: The work aims to describe the methodology used for the management of accidents in a laboratory with an integrated management system (quality, safety, corruption prevention and transparency).
METHODS: The methodology used was to prepare a specific procedure / instruction for the management of accidents in order to analyze the cause that caused them, adopt the appropriate corrective actions to cancel or minimize the likelihood that they will recur and possibly update the Risk Assessment Document. The data relating to 2019 and 2020 were therefore collected in order to identify and classify accidents and prepare appropriate corrective actions.
RESULTS: The results show that the accidents that most occur at the Experimental Zooprophylactic Institute of Lazio and Tuscany Mariano Aleandri are those in transit and those caused by cuts.
CONCLUSIONS: The management of accidents in a laboratory with an integrated management system makes it possible to standardize behaviors, define responsibilities and operating methods using a single documentary and data management system, avoiding duplication of records and facilitating internal communication through the sharing of information. In this way, not only is there a continuous improvement in the health and safety conditions of workers but at the same time a better management of the resources allocated to safety.


KEY WORDS: Occupational accidents, near miss, risk assessment
