||A study of complaints of fatigue by workers employed in Vietnamese factories with newly imported technology
||Jan. 1997, Vol.35, No.1, p.16-28. 27 ref.
||A questionnaire survey of 389 workers in 10 Vietnamese factories with newly imported technology revealed that about 60% of the workers were satisfied with their current working conditions. Heat, dust and noise were identified as the most important risks. Main complaints concerned machines and equipment which were too large for Vietnamese workers, the rapid work pace, and monotonous working conditions. Female workers complained of irregularity of menstruation. The prevalence rate of subjective fatigue complaints increased significantly after work. In general, these problems were more common among workers in textile and electronics factories. Limitations of the study are discussed.
