Background: The laboratory is important to conduct the experiments, investigations, and observations of various fields of scientific study. . Learning activities in the laboratory are withstanding the potential safety, health, and environmental hazards, such as chemical, physical, biological, and even emergency hazards. However, potential hazards are avoidable with risk management through the implementation of the Laboratory Occupational Health, Safety, and Environmental Management System (OHSEMS). This study aimed to analyze the implementation of OHSEMS aspects at the Laboratory of Universitas Indonesia (UI).

Subjects and Method: This was a descriptive study using a quantitative approach that conducted at the laboratory of UI in 2020. The attainment of OHSEMS implementation was measured using media in the form of a laboratory inspection checklist which UI had developed with some improvements. This checklist form has 157 questions that cover 15 aspects of OHSEMS in the form of closed questions. The inspection score is analyzed by using the gap analysis method and reported descriptively.

Results: Laboratories at UI implemented most of the OHSEMS aspects, within ≥ 70% as the cutoff score (Lab A2 : 76%; Lab A4 : 78%; Lab A9 : 81%; Lab A10 : 78%; Lab F5 : 74%; Lab F12 : 73%; Lab F13 : 80%; Lab F14 : 85%; and Lab G19 : 95%), with the lowest and highest assessment range on each aspect of its OHSEMS (commitment and policy: 50-100% ; planning: 50-95% ; implementation: 79-97% ; operational control: 75-94% ; checking: 33-100% ; management review: 0-100%). The gap analysis showed that the highest gap lies in the operational control aspect (laboratory housekeeping, inventory system, and emergency preparedness and response).

Conclusion: Improvement and remedial actions still need to be taken in several aspects, particularly the aspect with the highest gap; operational control. Besides that, aspects of checking and management review must still be improved by conducting an audit.
