Structured interviews and observations collected quantitative and qualitative data from janitors. The researcher lived with and watched the community during fieldwork. Results demonstrate that their working circumstances are unsafe, working timings and length are likewise risky, alcohol and cigarette usage is high, protective equipment are not accessible, employment status is predominantly contractual, educational standards are low, health conditions are poor, and dwelling conditions are congested.
