This study was a descriptive survey conducted to compare the sources of home accidents between two types of urban housing units in Plateau State, Nigeria. Four research questions guided the study and four hypotheses were tested. The population for the study was 391,247 households. The sample for the study was 504 workers drawn from the population of study. A multi-stage sampling technique was used to select the sample. The instrument for data collection was a structured questionnaire. Mean and Standard Deviation were used to answer the four research questions, while the four hypotheses were tested using student t-test at 0.05 significance level. The findings revealed that there was no significant difference in the general perception of respondents on the main sources of home accidents in the kitchen area. Comparatively, the mean scores of respondents on the two types of housing units based on main sources of accidents had critical t-values of t=0.775 P>0.05 for kitchen, t=2.100 P<0.05 for toilet and bathroom, t= 2.060 P<0.05 for living room and t=2.576 P<0.05 for compound areas respectively. The study found that most of the items listed were agreed upon as sources of home accident but the rating differed in the extent to which these sources were assumed to be sources of home accident. It was recommended that this study be carried out in all types of housing units and in both rural and urban areas of Plateau State.
