Introduction: Health centers are more contaminated and pathogenic- and in briefly more dangerous- than other offices and work places for the employees. The goal for the following research was review of the occupational injuries occurrence and prevalence and some affective factors among Hashtrood health network employees.

Methods: This cross sectioned study was conducted by questionnaire distributed to 270 Hashtrood health center employees. Data were analyzed by SPSS through X2 , t-test and logistic regression.

Results: The incidence and prevalence rates of occupational injuries were 43.8%and 61% respectively. Needles and sharp objects injuries had the highest ratio (Incidence rate 22.4% and 19% respectively , and prevalence rate 34.3% and 25.1% respectively). Only 32.6% of the employees reported their injuries .In 49.5% of cases they haven't got the proper trains. The rate of occupational injuries among hospital and laboratory employees (70% and 66.7% respectively) is more than other centers (P<0.05). There was an significant correlation between the employees education level and their occupational injuries, that means the most occupational injuries have been happened for the one who has diploma or less education (P<0.05).

Conclusions: Given to the vast occupational injuries, preventing measures must be considered. To reduce the occupational injuries, we suggest providing the needed training for the new comers and periodically for the employees and also a proper reporting system by employees especially in hospitals and labs.
