In order to determine the risk variables causing accidents, one hundred MMH employees from the local area of the core market were chosen. A modified standard Nordic questionnaire was used. Different approaches can able to evaluate (like- OWAS approach can be used to analyse working postures) details of accident cases based on the proper reason. Lifting and carrying goods was when the majority of accidents—including being struck by an object and slipping and falling—took place. Accident reports indicated that not many accident cases reported in the local hospitals, which actually indicating to a general disregard for going to the hospitals of injured labours.
