The world was rocked by a pandemic of severe respiratory sickness known as Covid-19. The viral infection is rapidly spreading over the world. Droplet transmission, contact with an infected case, and contact with contaminated fomites are all ways for the virus to spread. After a cluster of pneumonia outbreaks was reported in late December 2019 from Wuhan, China, the disease was first identified. Using next-generation sequencing technologies, a new human coronavirus (HCoV) was isolated from these instances, identified as a beta coronavirus, and provisionally called 2019 novel corona virus (2019-nCoV). The virus was called “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus” (SARS-CoV2) by the International Committee on Virus Taxonomy on February 11, 2020, and COVID-19 by the World Health Organization. The outbreak of fatal respiratory illnesses in Wuhan, China prompted speculation that SARS-CoV2 was a laboratory-manipulated virus. However, based on the RBD on the SARS-CoV2, a study published in Nature Medicine on 17 March 20 by Andersen et al. concluded that SARS-CoV2 is not a laboratory-manipulated virus. SARS-CoV-2 possesses an RBD that binds to ACE2 in humans, ferrets, cats, and other species with similar receptors. According to WHO, coronaviruses are a category of viruses that cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more serious illnesses including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) (2019). As a result, the government took extraordinary measures and established legislation requiring all individuals and sectors, including industries, to comply with the globally stated Covid-19 regulations or face legal consequences. However, the rate of law evasion in Nigeria is alarming; many local and emerging industries are big participants in law evasion in Nigeria since they believe in bribery and are thus found to be in violation of the law. On the other hand, Nigeria’s law enforcement agencies are significant actors in corruption, and as a result, they fail to carry out their jobs properly and effectively as a result of bribery compensation demands. As a result of the foregoing, this study is being conducted to determine the rate at which


Covid-19’s severe and lethal nature has necessitated a number of limitations and prevention measures to limit its spread over the world, as the virus has the power to kill a person within seven days of contact (WHO 2019). As a result of Nigeria’s Covid-19 experience, the government passed legislation requiring residents to adhere to Covid-19 prevention measures. Furthermore, these regulations apply to all sectors of the economy and organizations, including domestic enterprises. However, because most industrial tasks are complicated in nature, they cannot be completed with adhering to the majority of the covid-19 criteria, such as social separation, continual hand washing, and regular cleaning of commonly touched surfaces.


The study’s main goal is to determine the level of Covid-19 safety compliance among industrial workers. Other specific goals are listed below:

To find out if Abuja’s industrial workers are following the Covid-19 safety precautions.

Examine the extent to which industrial workers follow certain safety precautions.

To see if government enforcement authorities and the industry’s management board are doing their jobs in ensuring that workers are following Covid 19 prevention measures to the letter.


What are the industrial worker-specific Covid-19 preventive measures?

Is it true that Abuja’s industrial workers follow Covid-19 safety precautions?

What is the level of compliance with Covid-19 safety precautions among industrial workers?

Is it the responsibility of government enforcement authorities and the industry’s management board to ensure that staff follow Covid 19 prevention measures to the letter?


This study aims to determine whether or not industrial workers follow Covid-19 rules or prevention majors, as well as the extent to which they adhere to these safety measures. It will also identify factors that influence workers’ adherence to the Covid-19 regulations. As a result, these findings will be valuable to the government in exposing the current state of compliance with Covid-19 laws and assisting them in determining the best strategies to promote improved worker compliance with Covid-19 standards.

This research will also be used as a standard for academic purposes.


This study examines the extent of covid-19 safety compliance among industrial workers, with a focus on Polystyrene Industries Abuja, Nigeria.


The researcher’s main restraints when doing this study were money, time, and the availability of resources.


Government: The body of people who make up a political unit’s or organization’s governing authority: for example, the officials who make up a political unit’s governing body and make up the organization as an active agency.

Covid 19: Also known as coronavirus, this is a contagious respiratory disease produced by a novel coronavirus strain that causes illness in humans.

The act of obeying and observing what is authorized and legal is known as compliance.
