The paper, assessing the laboratory safety and security skills among science technology and mathematics (STM) teachers in Sokoto State examines STM teachers skills in the state of the art procedures and practices. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. A sample of ninety (90) teachers of the core science subjects was selected through stratified random sampling method from the population of science teachers in Sokoto State. Three research questions were answered. Findings of the study indicated that the science laboratories in Sokoto State lack the most essential safety devices.
