Dr. Shreyansh Hosure*, Dr. Satyanarayan K. and Dr. Jagdeeswary V.

ABSTRACT

The present study aimed to identify the occupational health hazards among veterinarians working in R & D and diagnostic sector of Karnataka and to explore the preventive measures taken by them. An exploratory research design was adopted for the study. Thirty veterinarians working in R & D and diagnostic sector were selected and data collection was done through the structured questionnaire method. The results from the study revealed that majority of respondents exposed to chemical hazards (36.66%) were found to be high whereas biological hazard (43.34%) were found to be medium and physical hazards (50.00%) and self-reported diseases (40.00%) encountered were found to be low. Most of respondents were found to be medium (56.66%) in taking the preventive measures. In spite of having optimal awareness on various occupational hazards, preventive measures taken are improperly practiced. It may be concluded that veterinarians working in R & D and diagnostic sector were exposed to variety of hazardous situations during their practice, hence there is need to educate them during their early years of career.
