Abstract

ABSTRACT Welding is the most common method of joining metals in industry today. Welding operation is one of the most critical operations of any manufacturing process. This study tried to assess occupational hazards of the welders of Kolkata, identify the early hidden cardiovascular amongst these welders and quantify their specific muscle damage profile. Arbitrarily 52 welders from manufacturing welding hub area of Kolkata and 40 non-welders ‘workers were chosen for this study and some related physical, ocular and biochemical parameters were assessed in standardized procedure. Welders are mainly suffering from cardiac risk due to continuous exposed to excessive stress job profile. Moreover, they have severe ocular damage and blood vessel damage due to negligence of use of protective eye gear and gloves during welding time. Exposure to vibrating tools for prolonged time may lead to higher ANA titre. Awkward working posture leads to onset of musculo-skeletal disorders in near future. Proper preventive measure needs to be taken immediately for better productivity.

Key Words

Welder, lipoprotein(a), C-R Protein, cardio-vascular risk, ocular pressure, Antinuclear antibody.
