Impact of health hazard on health care workers in Agra city of Uttar Pradesh
Anupama Sharma and Dr. Ram Bharose
There are many issues with occupational safety and health (OSH) in India. Unprecedented growth and progress are accompanied by challenges like a sizable workforce in the unorganized sector, the availability of cheap labor, low public spending on health, and inadequate implementation of existing legislation, lack of reliable OSH data, a shortage of OSH professionals, a multiplicity of statutory controls, stakeholder apathy, and infrastructure issues. The HCWs (both male and female) from 30 hospitals in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh's capital city of Agra participated in this study. A range of HCWs were represented in the study group, including staff and student nurses, staff and student lab technicians, senior residents, junior residents, interns, undergraduate medical students, and others. With the participation of 600 HCWs, the study was conducted. In Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India, a city tertiary hospital conducted a hospital-based cross-sectional study. A predetermined schedule was used to gather information from 600 respondents (doctor, nurse, lab technician, and staff). Therefore, the goal of this study was to ascertain whether paramedical workers were aware of and adhered to commonplace occupational safety precautions like universal precautions in their daily work.
