Abstract:

Sugar industry, based on sugarcane is a tropical plant which highly depends upon the amount of rainfall. It is an important cash crop in the country which impacts the rural livelihood. A purposive survey was conducted in sugar industries of Kabirdham district of Chhattisgarh. As the workplace is a significant source of both demands and pressures that causes stress this may also cause health hazards. This study investigates the impact of workplace environmental parameters such as illumination, noise, temperature, relative humidity, vibration, and particulate matter, on workers of sugar industries of Chhattisgarh which are directly correlated to the performance and productivity of sugar industry workers. Results of monitoring signify the role of environmental parameters, which were found significantly higher in many places of activities than the permissible limits. It also raises the concern to safety and wellbeing of workers, whom are directly responsible in block chain of productivity and turnover of the sugar industry.
