Jyoti Pant, Lotika Amit

Protective textile is a part of technical textiles which are used in all the textile based products to perform some special functions rather than aesthetic or decorative purposes. These protective clothing are used by the huge number of agriculture and dairy workers to protect themselves from various ill effects of farming and dairy work. Wearing the proper clothes at work place can help to prevent various injuries and skin infections to the body. Hence, the descriptive as well as experimental study was conducted on the 25 female dairy workers of tarai region of District Nainital to know about the occupational problems and to design the protective clothing for them on the basis of their needs. The survey method was used by the researcher to collect the information from dairy workers. The results obtained from the study revealed that the negative correlation (-0.37) was found between health problems and activities of female dairy workers. It means that activities of dairy workers adversely affect workers health. Therefore, the researcher designed kameez apron and cap for female workers on the basis of their necessities using polyester taffeta fabric. These protective clothing’s price was between the ≠ 100-500 which can be afford maximum number of dairy female workers.
