This study determined the workability of Safety Education and Training for Workers’ strategy in reducing accidents. A descriptive survey research design was used. A total of 20 Managerial staff with mean work experience of 13.5 years was selected from 10 manufacturing industries in Lagos State, using intact group method. They were 100% males. Data gathering tools were validated, self-developed questionnaire and accident data recorded in the industries, 12 months before and 12 months after the implementation of safety education and training for workers’ programme. Data were treated using percentage and correlation analysis. Results indicated that the obtained r = 0.692 is less than r table (.707); df6 at .05 significance level, meaning that there is no significant positive relationship between pre-post intervention accident data in the industries. It was concluded that Safety Education and Training for Workers’ strategy is not effective in reducing accidents in the industries.
