Introduction: Clinical Laboratories play a crucial role in the diagnosis, treat- ment and follow-up of illnesses. An appropriate policy of quality in all technical, methodological and management activities should guarantee the quality in every step of the clinical process. This aim would be unattainable without appropriate working conditions in the labs where one can find one of the most specialised and better qual- ified professionals. Aim: To study the degree of implementation of a Risk at the work-place Pre- vention Management System in clinical laboratories integrated in its Quality Man- agement System. Materials and methods: A number of clinical laboratories have been analysed, checking a series of criteria related to their quality management and their risk pre- vention systems in order not only to get familiar with the Quality Management Sys- tem implemented in the lab (both internal or external(certified/ officially recognised), but also to verify the actions carried out towards safety and health in order to find out whether the existence of a quality management system has an impact in the im- provement of working conditions. Moreover, the rate of accidents at wok has been analysed and risks in every laboratory have been evaluated in order to complete the prevention system data. Conclusions: The sample studied put forth that both quality and risk at the work-place prevention systems are not widely implemented in laboratories. Howev- er, the results cannot be extrapolated to laboratories in general since the sample is not representative enough but they can be considered a starting point for further in- vestigations. Anyway, both quality management and risk at the work-place preven- tion in laboratories should be implemented in a coordinated way for further benefits even if it is not easy.
