J. Niveditha, P. Vidya

The eminence of women workforce has a great impact on the economy of a country. Many studies have quoted that the workers in textile industry face many physical health problems including ‘occupational fatigue syndrome’. In the light of this, an attempt was made to assess the health and nutritional status of female spinning residential workers. The study was carried out at a private mill in Tiruppur district. A total of 130 female spinning workers from various working units residing in hostel within the premises aged between 18 and 35 were selected randomly. About 40 per cent of the workers showed the symptoms of musculoskeletal disorder including lower back pain, pain in arms and legs, upper back pain and joint pain. Similarly, 42 per cent of the respondents had GI disturbances like constipation, loss of appetite, flatulence, indigestion and peptic ulcer.33 per cent of the workers suffered from the symptoms of respiratory diseases like cough, breathlessness, wheezing, asthma, phlegm, sinusitis and chest tightness. RDA was also not met by the workers with respect to all essential nutrients. Nutrition education was given using different aids to impart knowledge on need and importance of nutrition.
