The manufacturing sector is an assorted and complex industry comprising of different kinds of work environments. Labourers can be presented to various perils in this division that can result in genuine wounds, work-related diseases or even demise. Included are dangers including: Machine perils, for example, in-running nip dangers, introduction to moving parts and presentation to perilous movement if gear isn’t appropriately bolted and obstructed amid support and fix ill-advised or non-existent guarding and lockout of machines and hardware. Different dangers that might be available in an assembling work environment may include: a) musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) b) occupational disease arising from noise c) chemical exposures, and d) workplace violence and harassment. Every workplace has its hazards, but the manufacturing industry poses a higher risk of injury than many other modern work environments. Five biggest Safety concern was taken into consideration and the study was conducted in the southern part of India. The results revealed that on five years average the hazards for manufacturing is 47.3%, Priority industries 30.9%, Non-Priority Industries 21.08% and out of 8 hazards identified the top three are Heavy Machinery 24%, Confined space 15.6% and Hazardous materials 14.2%. According to the classification of injury in the manufacturing sector Fatal 23.9% partial total disablement 43.3% and Permanent total disablement 36.4% in the heavy machinery hazards. Based on the behavior based questionnaire survey using Pareto chart 80% of the worker in the manufacturing sector taking a risk for achieving the production. Disregarding this, it is conceivable to run a risk-free assembling task if the right preparing and training are given to workers. A major piece of guarding laborers is guaranteeing they are engaged and cheerful while finishing the job that needs to be done—this implies giving the correct apparatuses and preparing for the activity
