  • Safety Index for Small Scale Manufacturing Industries in Punjab
    • Authors: Satnam Singh, Lakhwinder Pal Singh
      Abstract: Abstract Safety index (SI) is a significant approach, utilized to monitor safety measures, ranking a problem and also helps in the decision-making process. In this paper, a new safety index has been developed for occupational safety of workers for small scale manufacturing industries (SSMI) of Punjab using well-known Delphi method and value of index is found to be 10.95. To check the validity of the factors, content validity index (CVI) is used, by taking experts’ opinions. SI is also evaluated by analysis of data collected from 15 SSMI of Punjab. From each industry, 11 workers were considered to fill the questionnaire. Average value of SI among 15 industries is found to be 7.41, which indicates that the lesser safety measures are maintained in SSMI of Punjab. Thus, the working environment is found to be dangerous for the workers. The primary reason behind this uncertain environment is the lack of knowledge among the workers. Therefore, it is required to improve the occupational safety factors of SSMI, so that employees should feel safe and comfortable in their respective workplace.   Keywords: Delphi method, occupational safety, small scale manufacturing industries, safety index Cite this Article Satnam Singh, Lakhwinder Pal Singh.

    • Authors: Md. Anwar Hossain, H. M. Zakir, Dipok Kumar, M. S. Alam
      Abstract: P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; direction: ltr; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); line-height: 107%; widows: 2; orphans: 2; }P.western { font-family: "Times New Roman",serif; font-size: 12pt; }P.cjk { font-size: 12pt; }P.ctl { font-size: 12pt; } Abstract Disposal of urban and industrial waste is one of the major problems and responsible for both soil and water pollution in Chittagong city, Bangladesh. Total 22 surface water samples were collected from different locations of Chittagong city to assess quality and metallic pollution level. The concentrations of Fe, Mn, Cu, Cr and Pb in water samples ranged from trace- 10.37, trace- 1.91, 0.824–0.999, 0.11–1.32 and 1.69–2.56 µg ml-1, respectively while the contents of Zn and Ni were trace. Among the metals, Pb was dominant in water samples followed by Cu and Cr. The study results inferred that all water samples were unsuitable for irrigation due to higher concentrations of Pb, Cu and Cr. Furthermore, Cr and Pb showed highly significant positive correlation, which indicates that the metals were interrelated with each other and may be originated from the same source of the study area. The mean concentrations of Ca, Mg, Na and K in water samples were 61.98, 77.08, 102.90 and 146.90 µg ml-1, respectively. Among the anions, Cl contributes 98% to the total anionic mass balance followed by HCO3 (1.84%). In respect of K, Cl and HCO3 contents, all water samples were found unsuitable for irrigation. The study results concluded that surface water in the study area was significantly contaminated and hence the authority should take initiative to preserve the city environment.   Keywords: Heavy metal, surface water quality, pollution, Chittagong, Bangladesh   Cite this Article Md.

  • Investigation of Mechanical Properties of Friction Stir Welded AA6063
           Joints
    • Authors: Mohd Shiraz, Gyanendu Sharma
      Abstract: Abstract Friction Stir Welding is often referred as the joining technology of next generation because of its multiple advantages over the existing conventional processes. It is a solid state joining process which is free from the requirement of filler wire, consumable material, harmful gaseous emissions and also provides smooth surface with better surface finish. Moreover since no third additive material is involved hence, the microstructure of the welded joint also bears resemblance to the base metal. In this paper, Aluminium alloy AA6063 has been friction stir welded with rotational speed being the variable parameter. The obtained joint has been characterized for mechanical property Tensile Strength. The work has a significant importance because the used material AA6063 is having versatile operational utility in various applications.

           while Operating Hand Grinding Machines
    • Authors: Chidambaram Mani, Krishnasamy Sankaranarayanasamy, Nallathambi Sivashanmugam
      Abstract: Abstract The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of handle grips of polyurethane materials of different densities on hand arm vibration while operating hand held grinding machines. The hand arm vibration was analyzed in terms of fingertip force, using FingerTPS systems. Polyurethane foam handle grips of thickness 4 mm, of four densities were chosen for the study. Thirteen healthy male subjects consisting of students and professionals were involved in the study and the grinding was done on a standardized work piece of a mild steel plate, in the randomly ordered experimental conditions. Using a handle grip reduces the force on hand and higher the density of the handle grip foam, the higher is the reduction of the four handle grips deployed for the trial, the handle grip ‘foam 120’, which has the highest density, reduced 54.9% of the force as compared with the bare handed condition. The pneumatic grinding machine operators can use a handle grip of polyurethane foam of density D120 to obtain a maximum reduction of the force on the fingers and hand.

    • Authors: Arjan Singh, Lakhwinder Pal Singh, Arvind Bhardwaj
      Abstract: Abstract This study aims to assess the work related musculoskeletal discomfort in 94 subjects engaged in grinding task in manufacturing industry. All subjects who participated in this study were males with mean age (SD) of 34.26 (9.67) years and work experience in grinding job ranges from 01–27 years with a mean (SD) of 10.47(7.21). Most of the workers had an education below matriculation (81.9%), out of which 32.9% were devoid of education. These subjects were assessed for discomfort in 20 body regions using Cornell musculoskeletal discomfort questionnaire (CMDQ). The highest discomfort detected was in wrists (15.47% (right) and 14.16% (left)), lower back (14.17%), forearms (9.32% (right) and 9.19 % (left)) followed by shoulders (5.93 (right) and 5.64% (left)), neck (5.53%), upper back (4.49%) and knees (3.17% (right) and 3.09% (left)). Discomfort was less observed in upper arms left and right (2% each), hips (1.56%) and least in left thigh, right thigh, lower leg left and right, foot left and right (0.7% each). It is concluded that, the subjective discomfort sensed by grinding workers is high in the upper body and it is a risk factor in developing serious musculoskeletal disorders.
