Abstract

The problem of work related health disorder and productivity has long been underestimated. Most of the workers experience mental stress during their working lives. To be very clear, work-related stresses are a leading cause of illness and disability. It has a serious consequence on the individual workers and also to the enterprise. The performance of employees, increasing rates of illness, work site accidents, absenteeism. These are all affected by an employee’s mental health status. The extent of work stress was noted to be decreased with an increase in their relationship with other staff in the establishments, level of education, average monthly earnings, the extent of satisfaction with factory environment, and also with financial status. Conversely, such stress experienced by the respondents has increased with an increase in their social status background and also found to be higher among those who own assets as well as migrated to the current place of living. While conducting the survey, most of the women respondents expressed that they suffer from sexual harassment problems. Also, they suffer from jealously, unnecessary gossip, and rivalry. Therefore fundamental changes are essential from employers, government, family members, and policy makers.
