A laboratory is a place to carry out experiments. Working in a laboratory means having zero chance to perform reckless behaviors in performing or using equipment and materials provided in a laboratory. A laboratory as a place with high chances of hazard occurrence is required to be examined by implementing Hazard Identification Risk Assessment Determining Control (HIRADC) analysis, which also an essential element in occupational safety and health management system due to the fact that it relates to the endeavor to prevent and control hazards used to determine the objectives and intentions of occupational safety and health. HIRADC analysis in this research is expected to reduce hazard risks that are likely to be discovered in laboratories. This research is performed in 2 nutrition laboratories in the Faculty of Public Health, Universitas Airlangga. The data used are the primary data obtained from observation. The results show that there are 15 hazard identifications from two identified laboratories. The highest hazard level is medium-risk, which consists of 3 hazard identifications. Risk controls need to be continuously implemented in order to control hazards that might be occurred.
