Question

Write a short note on the health problems of a worker in the silk industry.

Open in App
Solution

Workers in the silk industry suffer from respiratory disorders. This is due to the inhalation of vapours from the boiling cocoons and the diesel used to run the machines. The loud and deafening music played at the workplace to block out the sounds of the machinery affects their hearing. The workers have to dip their hands into hot water to check whether the silk threads have loosened enough to be removed from the cocoons. This causes blisters and open wounds.
