Occupational hazard is a risk accepted as a result of a particular work/job and it is estimated that more than 7,500 people die every day; 1,000 from occupational accidents and 6,500 from work-related diseases. The rate of fatal occupational accidents increased slightly (Hämäläinen et. at., 2006). The number of non-fatal occupational accidents was estimated to be 374 million, increasing significantly from 2010. The rubber tapping, a major task of rubber plantation worker involves carrying heavy loads, navigating rough terrain, and using sharp tools. However, little is known about occupational injury among this vulnerable working population. The purpose of the study is to understand the occupational hazards faced by rubber plantation workers in Kollam District in Kerala.
