Abstract: This study examined the correlation between some heavy metals (chromium, nickel, arsenic) and hepatic Aspartate transaminase, Alanine transaminase and Alkaline phosphatase (AST, ALT, ALP) in carpenters residing in Port-Harcourt. A total of 90 carpenters were used for the study. Blood samples were collected and analysed for chromium, nickel, arsenic, AST, ALT and ALP, using standard laboratory procedures. There were statistically significant positive correlations between chromium and the hepatic enzymes (AST, ALT and ALP). A statistically significant positive correlation also was observed between nickel and ALP. However, non-significant positive correlations were observed between arsenic and the hepatic enzymes (AST, ALT and ALP). There appears to be an association between the chromium, nickel and the hepatic enzyme levels of the carpenters in this study.
