This study is a cross-sectional research on the causes of occupational accidents, trauma and injuries present interesting public health challenges. It was primarily aimed at assessing the accidents, trauma and injuries that are inherent in occupational setting with particular interest in shoe production. The descriptive survey design involves sampling the opinion of workers in the shoe production industry in Ariaria market Aba. Questionnaire was used to assess about 92 shoe makers in the study population. Dadat was analysed via tables of percentage distributions and charts, while Chi square method at 5% was used to test for associations in the study. Hazards of shoe production in the study area were not significantly affected by their marital status and age (p˃0.05) and work experience (p˃0.05). Access to safety devices were significantly (p<0.05) affected by marital status and gender, while age and experience of the respondents played no significant roles. Age of respondent showed a significant association (p<0.05) with protection at work and age of respondent (p<0.05) and years of experience (p<0.05) showed a significant association with the rate of injury by sharp object. Generally, results obtained revealed that shoe workers were exposed to different hazards and these hazards are associated with occupational accidents, trauma and injuries.
