      Background: This systematic review and meta-analysis study evaluates a relationship between occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica and serum copper (Cu) levels as an indicator for early detection of silicosis. Materials and Methods: A systematic search was conducted, and the quality of results was evaluated in accordance with the guidelines of Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses. The following databases were searched, including Web of Sciences, Scopus, and PubMed from inception until November 2021. The following keywords were selected for searching in the mentioned databases including, “copper” OR “serum copper” AND “silicosis”. The mean (standard deviation [SD]) of Cu was extracted for both silicosis and non-silicosis subjects. The differences in mean effect size were pooled using the random-effect model. Heterogeneity and publication bias were evaluated using the I2 value and Begg's test and Egger's test, respectively. Results: A total of 159 studies were initially found, among which eight studies were included in the meta-analysis. Random-effect meta-analysis of these eight studies showed that silicosis patients had higher copper levels than the non-silicosis group with a pooled standardized mean difference (SMD) of 3.02 (95% confidence interval: 0.25, 5.78); I2 = 99.3%, P value < 0.001. The subgroup analysis showed that the corresponding figures in those with mean age >40 years and <40 years were 5.79 (2.06, 9.52) and −0.43 (−4.57, 3.70), respectively. Moreover, no publication bias was found in the analyses. Conclusions: The results of the present study demonstrated that silica exposure may be associated with increasing serum Cu levels.

      Context: Beyond the biological impact of the pandemic in working life, socioeconomic consequences is also important for workers. This study aimed to investigate both biologic and economic impacts of the pandemic. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, a structured questionnaire were applied by telephone to 233 workers who were diagnosed with coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19) at hospital. A pretest was applied before the data collection. The outcomes of the study were work-related Covid-19 transmission (WRCT) and pandemic-related economic worsening (PREW). Descriptive statistics is presented. Chi-square test is used in comparison of proportions. Results: Of the 233 workers, 52% were male (n = 120) and the mean age was 37.7 (±9.2) years. WRCT was observed in 73% of health care workers. PREW was 6.7 times higher in private sector (95% confidence interval = 3.1-14.5), especially in self-employed and small business owners. Drivers and sales workers were the unluckiest. Because they were affected in terms of both the WRCT and PREW. Conclusions: Within the framework of occupational health, the economic destructive effects of the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the biological impacts should be considered with a holistic perspective. Protective policies should be developed especially for economically fragile groups against the pandemic such as self-employed, small business owners, and private sector workers.

      Background and Objective: Literature review revealed that chemicals used in the printing industry show an association between genotoxicity and occupational exposure. Flexography is one type of printing technique recently becoming popular because of its fast, cost-efficient, and high-quality label printing. The micronucleus (MN) is considered to be a reliable marker for genotoxic damage, and it has a close association with cancer incidences by determining the presence and the extent of the chromosomal damage. Because there are no studies on flexographic workers (FWs), this study was intended to analyze and evaluate the effect of occupational exposure on the MN frequency of buccal epithelial cells. Materials and Methods: The study comprised 100 FWs and 100 age-matched healthy controls with and without smoking habits. Buccal epithelial cells were collected from all subjects by using a cytobrush, followed by staining with Feulgen fast green. The MN frequency was recorded for each individual using the Tolbert et al. criteria. Data was statistically analyzed by using one-way analysis of variance and the posthoc test. Results: FWs with smoking habits showed a significant increase in MN frequency (1.86 ± 1.77) than workers without the habit (1.02 ± 1.08) and controls (with the habit 1.26 ± 1.33 and without the habit 0.62 ± 0.92). However, there was no significant increase of MN in FWs without the habit when compared with controls. Conclusion: This study observed the cytogenetic damage in FWs and concludes that these workers are at greater risk for genotoxicity, and the MN assay can serve as a useful biomarker.

      Context: Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) due to obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is reported to be a major contributor to many road traffic accidents. Lack of awareness and diagnosis of OSA among public transport workers remains a threat to the society. Aims: The primary aim of this study was to assess the risk of OSA among transport drivers of south Kerala using modified Berlin questionnaire. The secondary objective included craniofacial assessment of the high-risk patients identified through the questionnaire using lateral cephalogram. Settings and Design: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 180 transport drivers of south Kerala. Methods and Material: Modified Berlin questionnaire and limited physical examination [body mass index (kg/m2), neck circumference (cm), waist circumference (cm), hip circumference and waist to hip ratio, blood pressure (mm Hg)] were recorded. The screened subjects were categorized as high-risk snorers and low-risk snorers based on modified Berlin questionnaire. Craniofacial morphological variations of high-risk group were assessed by lateral cephalograms. Statistical Analysis Used: The descriptive statistics were represented as mean and standard deviation and percentage. Inter-group comparison was performed with independent sample t test. Results: The study demonstrated 64.4% of subjects were non-snorers and 35.6% were snorers. Furthermore, among the snorers, 46.9% were identified as high-risk snorers, whereas the remaining 53.1% represented low-risk snorers. Conclusions: The study revealed the concealed risk of OSA among transport drivers could be screened through the questionnaires and demographics assessment. The application of the proposed screening protocol would triage and enhance safety of OSA affected transport drivers.

      Introduction: Modernization has led to greater usage of Air Conditioners (ACs) in our daily lives. It is observed that the occupants of office buildings with ACs consistently report on average more symptoms than do occupants of office buildings with natural ventilation referred to as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). The appearance of symptoms reduces work efficiency and increases absenteeism due to sickness (sickness absenteeism). Therefore, the present study was planned to evaluate the impact of usage of ACs on SBS and to find out the association of ACs with sickness absenteeism and lung function tests. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted on 200 healthy non-smoker adults in the age group of 18 to 45 years who were using ACs for at least 6 to 8 h/day for more than 2 years (group I). And 200 healthy adults, age and gender-matched, with the same work pattern, not using ACs at all served as controls (group II). The basic information on the usage of ACs and the prevalence of discomfort related to neural symptoms, respiratory symptoms, and skin and mucous membrane related to SBS was obtained through a questionnaire. Results: The building-related symptoms in group I males were more compared to group II males and significantly higher in group I males compared to females. We observed that the appearance of symptoms of SBS led to sickness absenteeism among group I participants. Lung function tests especially FVC, FEV1, PEFR, and MVV were significantly reduced among group I males and females compared to group II males and females. Conclusion: ACs have a profound effect on the quality of the air we breathe and on human health than just lowering the temperature. There is a higher prevalence of SBS-Respiratory and allergic symptoms in AC users.

      Context: Lathe machine work is an important unorganized sector in India. However, to date, no work physiological studies have been conducted among these workers to evaluate the physical strain involved in this work. Aim: The present study aims to determine the workload in different lathe machine tasks from working heart rates (HRs) and certain cardiac indices. Settings and Design: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 38 full-time male workers aged between 21 and 60 years. Methods and Materials: The HR was measured directly during the productive work phase, additional work phase, and work pauses. Two cardiac strain indices, viz., net cardiac cost and relative cardiac cost were derived. The workload was also judged according to some standard acceptable criteria of physical strain. Statistical Analysis Used: Mean and standard deviation were obtained for different categories of HR. Intergroup comparisons were conducted through one-way analysis of variance and the t-test. Results: The mean working HR was found to be 99 beats per minute. A maximal working HR of 105 ± 6.1 beats per minute with a corresponding relative cardiac cost of 26% was obtained during the additional work phase. Conclusions: The overall workload appeared to be moderate in nature. An acceptable criterion of cardiac cost of 30% appeared to be the most sensitive index in detecting workers experiencing a higher level of physical strain.

      Background: N95 filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) are used by health care workers for prevention of airborne infection, and its use has increased manifolds during COVID-19 pandemic. Prolonged use may result in carbon dioxide (CO2) accumulation, affect hemodynamics, and blood gas values. Although arterial blood gas values accurately measure the blood CO2 levels, venous blood gas values also show acceptable correlation. Aim: To evaluate the physiological impact of N95 FFRs on health care workers, including hemodynamic changes and venous blood levels of CO2 during a period of 6 h. Settings and Design: Prospective observational study in a tertiary care hospital. Methods: The study was conducted on 30 health care workers who performed routine duties while wearing N95 FFR. Venous blood gas values (CO2, pH, and bicarbonate) and vitals (respiratory rate, heart rate, blood pressure, and saturation) were noted at baseline, 2 (T2), and 6 h (T6) after wearing the mask. Discomfort level was also measured on a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) of 1–10. Statistical Analysis: Repeated measures analysis was done using repeated measures ANOVA or Friedman's test. Group comparisons for continuously distributed data were made using independent sample “t” test or Wilcoxon test. Results and Conclusion: Hemodynamic and blood gas values did not change over time. The VAS for discomfort because of respirator use was 1.33 (1.42) at T2 and 2.77 (1.91) at T6. This was a significant increase in discomfort over time (P = 0.001). About 80% of participants experienced discomfort during this period. N95 FFR did not lead to significant alteration in hemodynamics or change in blood gas values after 6 h of continuous usage. However, discomfort significantly increased over time.

      Background: Health care workers (HCWs) are at risk of acquiring tuberculosis (TB) infection and disease due to occupational exposure. But there are no national guidelines on routine screening for TB (active case finding (ACF)) among HCWs and understand its implementation and feasibility. Methods: This study was conducted among HCWs in a teaching hospital in India. We used symptom screening to identify those with presumptive TB and were further evaluated for diagnosis of TB. Results: A total of 1,001 HCWs were screened over a period of 18 months. In our study, 51 (5.1%) HCWs were found to have presumptive TB and on further evaluation, 5 (0.5%) of these patients were diagnosed with active TB. The number needed to screen (NNS) for one active TB among the HCWs was 200. Alcohol use was significantly associated with both presumptive TB (P = 0.037) and active TB (P = 0.035) among HCWs, and exposure to active TB patients (P = 0.014) in the family and workplace and increased frequency of exposures (P = <0.001) were associated with presumptive TB. Conclusion: ACF for TB among HCWs had a good yield in our study. ACF utilizing routine national TB program guidelines is feasible to be implemented among HCWs to aid in the early diagnosis and treatment of TB in this high-risk group.

      Background: Unemployment, insufficient resources, family poverty, and poor financial benefits are crucial determinants for internal or external migration of large sections of educated youth. Aims: To perform a comparative analysis of different levels of job satisfaction and the status of mental morbidity among migrant and nonmigrant population. Settings and Design: A cross-sectional study was employed between March 2016 and October 2017 at the field practice area of one of the tertiary health care institutes in Anand District of Gujarat State of India. Methods and Material: A total of 456 educated and skilled professionals participated in the study. Job descriptive index, Job in General, and Global Health Questionnaire-28 were utilized. Statistical Analysis: The data entry was performed in Epi InfoTM 7 followed by data analysis in EPI-INFO Software. Results and Conclusions: The overall job satisfaction in the study was found to be significantly higher among nonmigrants than migrants. All three scores were correlated with each other significantly. Overall, migrants were found to be significantly less satisfied with their jobs in general and more psychologically distressed, as compared to their nonmigrant counterparts.

      Background: Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are conditions that are caused and/or aggravated by work. The most important reason behind work-related musculoskeletal disorder is abnormal and/or stressful position of joints while working. Physiotherapists are very much prone to develop work-related musculoskeletal disorders, especially while treating neurologically challenged patients. Postural assessment is a key to identify a person at risk of developing work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Proper assessment of some of the areas like neck, spine, upper and lower extremities is the key to get risk factor analysis. REBA (Rapid Entire Body Assessment) is a tool which can be used on field to quantify areas of the body which are more likely to develop work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Aims: To find out risk of MSDs among physiotherapists treating neurologically challenged patients. Study Setting and Design: At neuro-paediatric department of SBB College of Physiotherapy, an observational pilot study was conducted. Materials and Methods: Photographs of the participants were captured with their consent through smart phone camera during treatment of different patients both adult and paediatric. Selected postures were analysed and quantified based on the REBA sheet. Statistical Analysis: Descriptive analysis was done based on areas at higher risk for MSDs according to REBA sheet. Results: More than 50% of participants were at moderate to high risk of developing MSDs. Conclusion: Physiotherapists working with neurological patients were found to be at high to medium risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. There is a need to assess MSD risk in detail in all physiotherapists.

      Context: The contemporary workplace creates a challenge toward physicians and their teams. They are forced into a situation, in which to be competitive they must have skills outside of their medical specialty, such as health management, pedagogy, and information and communication technologies. Aim: To analyze the level of stress and burnout among the medical employees in the hospital care. Settings and Design: Healthcare professionals from three private, municipal, and regional hospitals filled a questionnaire in the time period January–March 2021. Methods and Material: An adapted Maslach Burnout Inventory 55 question questionnaire was used and analyzed. Statistical Analysis Used: One-way ANOVA, correlation, and multiple regression analysis in SPSS. Results: We identified high levels of emotional exhaustion (>62% report high signs or above), high levels of depersonalization (>70% report signs of depersonalization), and low levels of personal accomplishment (<39% have below average sense of achievements). Conclusions: Despite the physicians and their teams reporting high levels of workload and stress, the satisfaction from work has not diminished and the evaluation for the quality of provided work is still high. Additional research into the topic is required with focus on comparison between hospital physicians and primary care physicians.

      Context: Moral distress is a common phenomenon in nurses that causes feelings of anger, fatigue, reduced quality of patient care, and leaving the nursing profession. To reduce the negative effects of this phenomenon, it is necessary to study the strategies and mechanisms to deal with it. Aims: It has been less studied in psychiatric nurses, so this study was conducted to investigate the mechanisms and strategies of psychiatric nurses in dealing with situations of moral distress. Settings and Design: This qualitative study was conducted based on a conventional content analysis of 12 psychiatric nurses selected by a purposive sampling method in the 2020 winter in Shiraz, Iran, considering the maximum diversity. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with participants for an average of 40–60 minutes per interview until data saturation. Results: We obtained strategies for dealing with moral distress in psychiatric nurses in four categories. The categories included “Coping strategies,” “Establish therapeutic and professional communication,” “Managerial support for nurses,” and “Commitment to religious beliefs.” Conclusions: Psychiatric nurses use personal, team, and management strategies to reduce moral distress in themselves and their colleagues and reduce its adverse effects on patients. Management support and organizational cooperation are necessary for the better implementation of these strategies.

      Introduction: The potential impact of employment on pregnancy is an important issue as several occupational factors have been reported to be associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes through increased work stress. The current study was undertaken among pregnant women to understand the difference in pregnancy-related stress among pregnant working women getting paid (WWP) and working women unpaid (WWU) (housewives) and to assess workplace stress among working WWP. Methods: A total of 426 study participants which included 213 participants in each group were recruited from a tertiary care hospital in Chennai. All the study participants were interviewed using an A–Z scale to understand pregnancy-related stress while WWP were also interviewed using Workplace Stress Questionnaire (WSQ). Results: It was observed that the mean score of WWP was significantly higher than the mean scores of WWU (t = 94.63; df = 1, P = 0.000). Those WWP who were working for >8 h daily had higher scores as compared to those working for ≤8 h. Conclusion: The study shows that the WWP had work stress in addition to background pregnancy-related stress.

      Background: Auto-rickshaw drivers (ARDs) are under constant physical and mental pressure due to illiteracy, poverty, lack of awareness about hazards of addictions, and other factors that lead to various habits majority being tobacco use. Studies have found that tobacco use is very prevalent among ARDs in comparison to general population. Tobacco use is commonly associated with cancers. Oral Pre-Malignant Lesions (OPMLs) are the strongest risk factor for majority of oral cancers. We studied the prevalence of OPML among ARDs of Belagavi and their association with tobacco use. Methods: It was a cross-sectional study conducted among 600 regular ARDs of Belagavi City during January to December 2016. We selected two ARDs that were the last in line from 300 major auto-rickshaw stands. We adapted the questionnaire from Global Adult Tobacco Survey questionnaire. After getting informed consent, we collected the data by personal interview and performed an oral visual examination for OPML for all the study participants. Data were analyzed using SPSS software. Institutional Ethics Committee approved the study. Results: Prevalence of tobacco was 62.17%. One-third of participants (30.17%) had OPMLs. Leukoplakia (62.43%) was the most common lesion. OPMLs were significantly associated with tobacco use and duration of tobacco use. Conclusions: About 30% of ARDs had an OPML. Chewing tobacco, gutkha, lime with tobacco, and cigarette were significantly associated with OPML.

      Color blindness or color vision deficiency (CVD) is a disease that makes recognizing colors difficult or impossible. A person with color blindness may find it challenging to obtain employment, particularly in positions that need the ability to distinguish or see colors accurately. As the world's largest producer of palm oil, Indonesia employs a vast number of people in this industry. To discern between ripe and unripe oil palm fruit, harvesting jobs for oil palms is one of the occupations that require excellent color recognition skills. In the lack of a practical test method to determine the eligibility of a color blind oil palm fruit harvester, a simple yet effective test that can be modified for each enterprise is required.
