The study utilized a descriptive research design using survey questionnaire. Respondents include 133 radiologic technologists from selected hospitals in Laguna. The data gathered were subjected to statistical treatment: frequency distribution, percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test for independent means and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The study concluded that, 1) majority of the respondents are aged 29 years old and below and female, and almost half of them are in service for 1 to 5 years; 2) the infection control practices in terms of standard precautions, transmission-based or additional precautions and waste segregation of the respondents are highly practiced. However, some items such as length of hand washing, wearing of gown and wearing of N-95 are highly practiced and wearing of eye shield or goggles resulted to low practice; 3) there are no significant differences in the infection control practices of the respondents in terms of age, gender and length of service.
