Laboratory is a place to conduct educational activities, experiments, research, and product quality test. In the Pharmaceutical Analysis Laboratory, there are plenty of chemical substances that potentially contain hazards. This study is cross-sectional study conducted in the Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Analysis, Faculty of Pharmacy, Universitas Airlangga Surabaya. Risk analysis is a process to identify hazards by calculating the size of the risks and determining whether a risk is acceptable or not. This study is objectified to identify the hazards in the Laboratory of Pharmaceutical Analysis, to assess, and to determine the risk level of identified hazards, as well as to provide recommendations of control that can be done to decrease the impacts of the risks using HIRADC method. There are three risks that belong to high-risk level, eleven risks that belong to moderate-risk level, and two risks that belong to low-risk level. All three high-risk level risks include skin burns caused by the exposure of concentrated HNO3, phenol, and concentrated H2SO4. The controls that can be carried out to reduce the three high-risk level risks are by performing every activity by the book and wearing Personal Protective Equipment (synthetic rubber gloves, long-sleeve laboratory coat, goggles, and chemical respirator).
