Description

The goal of all occupational safety and health programs is to foster a safe work environment. As a secondary effect, it may also protect co-workers, family members , employers, customers, suppliers, nearby communities, and other members of the public who are impacted by the workplace environment.
Textile industries involve diverse operations including fiber synthesis, weaving, manufacturing, dyeing and finishing. The prime health and safety concern in the processing of textiles is the exposure to toxic chemicals and physical hazards, such as accidents with machinery. Not only can the exposure to toxic chemicals cause immediate and long term health and safety problems at the production site, negative publicity on health aspects or issues of labour conditions during production proved to have a high impact on sales.

In the Foundry and Engineering industries, the accidents tended to be more severe when compared to other industries. There is also little reporting of occupational illnesses in smelters and foundries. The most common occupational illnesses were: acoustic trauma, industrial bronchitis, chemical and physical conjunctivitis and miscellaneous including poisonings.
