Abstract:
Majority of the people spend at least one-third and perhaps as much as one-half of their waking hours at workplace. Workplace environment is the key to determine the quality of their work and productivity. All the workers want and deserve a workplace that is physically and emotionally safe, where they can concentrate on their job responsibilities and attain some fulfillment, rather than distressing about basic amenities, the future of their child and uncomfortable conditions. Workers also expect fair pay and respect for their privacy. Workers are happier when they like their workplace and if they do not have to worry about workplace safety, basic amenities, welfare facilities, childcare, health insurance and other factors. Brick production system is mainly based upon manual labour. Brick kiln workers are considered as one of the most susceptible and excluded workers of Indian society. Brick kiln workers constantly linger under intense work demands to work more efficiently for higher production during seasons with limited resources and less management skills. These stressful circumstances get worsened by physical distress at the workplace leading to poor health conditions, physical discomforts and work related problems. The present study was undertaken with the objectives to assess workplace environment and workplace conditions at brick kiln units.
