This study was a survey designed to assess the role of personality type and gender differences in compliance with safety work behaviour in a sample of 189 employees drawn from Dangote Cement Company Plc located in Gboko, Benue State. The participants consisted of 156 males and 37 females. Their ages ranged from 28-56 years, with a mean age of 40 years. Two instruments: Type A behaviour Scale (TABS) developed by Omoluabi (1997) and Compliance with safety Behaviour scale (CSB) developed by Hayes, Perander, Smecko & Trask (1998) were used to measure personality type and compliance with safety behaviour respectively. Two-way ANOVA was adopted to analyse the data. The result showed that personality type was statistically significant in compliance with safety behaviour F (1, 185) =3 .91; P<.05. Also gender produced main effect on safety behaviour F (1, 185) =9.38; P<.01. No significant interactive effect was found between personality and gender in compliance with safety behaviour F (1, 185) =2.06, p >.05. Conclusion was drawn based on the results.
