Abstract Case-study research was carried out with a view to find the attributes of occupational injury among workers in the chemical industry and to enhance safety issues. Injury data were collected and processed in terms of different variables, such as age, gender, skills, type of hazard, etc. Pareto analysis was then applied to find a pattern of occupational injury among the workers. The study revealed that 79.52\% of the injured workers were in the 40-59 age group; 57.14\% of accidents occurred during the 1st shift; 73.26\% of accidents caused injury to hands, feet, chest to thigh, arms and eyes; and 70.93\% of injuries were caused by pumps, carrying and lifting, vehicles, pipelines, valves, and grinding. Surprisingly, no one was injured in the group of temporary workers. The paper also provides specific suggestions followed by some action plans.
