Abstract

This study used a descriptive research design. The respondents are the registered radiologic technologists. A self-made questionnaire was used to gather the data in determining the practices of the radiologic technologist in minimizing occupational risks. The gathered data were subjected to statistical treatments such as frequency, percentage, mean , standard deviation, t-test for independent means, analysis of variance and Scheffe's method. The study concluded that, 1) majority of the respondents' age are less than 25 years old. There are equal number of male and female respondents, and the most number of respondents have 1 to 3 year of length of employment; 2) the respondents minimize their occupational risks by always practicing measures to prevent radiation risks, biological risks, physical risks, ergonomics risks and chemical risks. However, they do not always practiced minimizing the risks on developing cardiovascular diseases; 3) there are significant differences in the practices of the respondents in minimizing ergonomic risks, cardiovascular risks, and overall risks when the respondents are grouped according to age. There are significant differences in the practices of the respondents in minimizing occupational risks in terms of ergonomics, cardiovascular risks and in overall practices, when the respondents are grouped according to gender. There are significant differences in the practices of the respondents in minimizing radiation risks, biological risks, ergonomic risks, cardiovascular risks and physical risks in terms of length of employment.
