The textile industry in India contributes significantly to the growth of the Indian economy and plays a vital role in giving employment to the country's rural and urban populations, it fails to promote education and health as essential aspects of the human development. The study of Occupational Health and Safety in the Spinning Industry focuses about how to increase worker health and safety in India. Yarn spinning is the process of turning fiber materials into yarns used in textile fabrics and industries. Fibers go through a series of procedures in spinning mills before being converted into yarn. Opening, where the bails are opened, is a section of every spinning mill. After that, the fibers are put into machines that go through carding, combining, and lastly twisting to make yarn. The spinning production process are involved in various of safety and health issues. Ergonomics increases a person's health, safety, and comfort at work so, ergonomics consideration is also important in the spinning industry. The goal of this article would be to provide a framework for understanding the hazards that textile employees are facing as a result of a lack of health and safety standards in the industry.
