Abstract:This study examines how the application of Total Quality Management (TQM) affects occupational hazards in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria. This industry is the mainstay of the Nigerian economy, accounting for more than eighty percent of GDP. The functioning of the oil and gas industry is therefore of prime importance to the Nigerian economy. The results show that a well-implemented TQM programme goes a long way in controlling occupational work hazards. This is because the prime motivating force to achieve health and safety comes from inside the organization through programmes like Total Quality Management. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
