Proper evaluation of various risks involved in job specifications in the workshop, and appropriate implementation, and adherence to the correct safety rules by instructors and all workshop users is a determinant factor in achievement of absolute safety in the workshop. Acquaintance and compliance with the basic safety practices in engineering profession in the course of undergraduate training makes safety engineering professionals in the field. Observance of safety measures in workshop among engineering students of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta was assessed using 44-item questionnaire. The questionnaire assessed the demography, housekeeping, personal protective devices, use of equipment, tools, and machineries, first aid and hygiene observation. A sample size of 195 engineering students was recruited for the study which cut across 2nd – 5th year students of the four engineering departments in the school. The responds was, civil 35 (17.9%), mechanical 64 (32.8%), electrical 51 (26.2%) and agricultural engineering students 45(23.1%). 67 (34.4%) of the participants were in 200 level, 68 (34.9%) in 300 level, 25 (12.8%) in 400 level and 35 (17.9%) in 500 level. The compliance level of engineering students of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta with the workshop safety rules was above average. Therefore for good safety competence in the appropriate field of work, more attention is needed to ensure absolute control of hazards and avoidance of injury.
