The major purpose of the study was to determine methodological needs of electrical/electronics workshop accident prevention in technical colleges in south western part of Nigeria. Two research Questions were answered. The study adopted a descriptive survey design. The population for the study was sixty six (66) comprised of forty two (42) electrical /electronics teachers from technical colleges, Ogun state and twenty four (24) electrical/electronics teachers from technical colleges, Oyo state. No sampling was adopted because the population was of manageable Size. The internal consistency of the instrument was ascertained using Cronbach Alpha method and reliability coefficient obtained for the instrument was 0.99. Structured questionnaire containing 39 items was designed and used for data collection. Mean and standard deviation were used to analyze research questions. The findings of the study revealed that accidents in electrical/electronics workshops are caused by failure to de-energize or isolate the electrical energy source prior to maintenance activities; accidents in school workshops can result to reduction in students’ enrolment. The findings of the study revealed that electrical/electronics workshop accidents can be prevented by covering all the potentially dangerous electric conductors with protective pane. It was recommended that workshop attendants or technologists should be recruited and updated always for proper monitoring of students’ activities inside workshop.
