Abstract : Abstract: India’s garment industry is one of the mainstay of the national economy. It is also one of the largest contributing sectors of India’s exports worldwide. Textile and garments sector is one of the important sectors among the various constituents of the manufacturing sector in India, mainly due to its contribution towards employment. It is the second largest employment provider after agriculture, both direct and indirect employment put together. The textiles and garments sector alone employed 20% of the workforce in the organized manufacturing sector. The textile industry currently contributes about 14 per cent to industrial production, 4 per cent to GDP, and 17 per cent to the country's export earnings, the report stated. During the year 2012-13, garments accounted for almost 39% of the total textiles exports. The total textile exports during 2012-13 was valued at Rs 137619.44 crore as against Rs 129829.30 crore during the corresponding period of financial year 2011-12, registering an increase of 6.00 percent in rupee terms. In US dollar terms, the same was valued at US$ 25263.74 million as against US$ 27328.06 million during the corresponding period of previous financial year registering a decline of 7.55 percent in US$ terms. According to global and in particular Asian literature reports it is seen that ergonomics science consists of methods and models for analyzing tasks, designing work, predicting performance, collecting data on human performance and their interaction with work components in the environment in which this interaction takes place. The tools deal with the analysis and evaluation of musculoskeletal factors. It also includes measurement of discomfort, observation of posture, analysis of workplace risks, measurement of work effort and fatigue, assessing lower back disorder, and predicting upper-extremity injury risks. There are many different tools and techniques that are used for assessment; this paper highlights assessment tools that are most relevant for assessing physical risks faced by workers in garment manufacturing industries.
