Abstract
Occupational respiratory status occurs in the workers exposed to occupation related hazards. These include Asthma, COPD, Coal workers pneumoconiosis, Silicosis, Asbestosis. Marble workers are occupationally exposed to intense environmental marble dust in their work place. Hence the present study aimed to assess the effectiveness of respiratory status among marble factory workers in selected factories of marble workers. The research design for the study is quasi experimental (pre-test and post –test with control group) design Non probability convenience sampling technique was used to select samples. Structured interview schedule which was divided into two sections demographic variables, structured knowledge questionnaire for assessing the knowledge of marble factory workers regarding respiratory status after assessing the knowledge of marble factory workers a planned teaching programme was given on the same day. A post –test was conducted on after 2 two days after the planned teaching programme to find out the gain in knowledge among marble factory workers regarding respiratory status. The mean score of experimental group for post-test knowledge score was 25.77%, the mean score of control group for post-test knowledge score was 16.20% was apparently higher than the mean score of experimental group for pre -test knowledge score was 16.20% the mean score of control group for pre-test knowledge score was 16.00% suggesting that the planned teaching programme was effective in increasing knowledge of marble factory workers regarding occupational respiratory status. The mean differences 9.77 between pre-test and post-test knowledge score of the marble factory workers was to be found the calculated student independent ‘t’ test valve of t=13.014 was found to be statistically significant at p<0.001 level. Chi-square test to associate the level of knowledge at selected demographic variable.
