Background and Objective: Medical diagnostic laboratories face a myriad of problems in the field of safety, health, and/or the environment (HSE) due to their sensitive functional characteristics. Therefore, the audit of these issues is of utmost importance. The present study aimed to evaluate EHS audit in medical diagnostic laboratories of North Khorasan province and their measurability among 37 public and private laboratories and 148 employees in 8 cities of this province.
Materials and Methods: For the purpose of the study, a checklist (approved in the terms of validity and reliability) was used to assess the level of HSE audit. SPSS (version 24) and SMART-PLS software were used to analyze the obtained data.
Results: As evidenced by the obtained results, the variables under study are in good condition in laboratories. Nonetheless, except for maintenance, the various dimensions of HSE audit have better conditions in public laboratories, compared to private ones. Moreover, it was found that different dimensions of HSE audit, except for sewage, are the same in different cities of the province.
Conclusion: Current laws and inspections of medical laboratories of North Khorasan province, following the guidelines and directives of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education, are very well evaluated and implemented. Therefore, it can be concluded that public and private laboratories investigated in the present study were in good condition.
