Abstract Title: Health impact of female informal workers Objective: To better understand the circumstance of female informal workers and the impact on their health Design: Descriptive study Population, Sample, Setting: The main respondents were 100 female wood craving workers working in the decoration and painting process, including lacquer application and gold covering process at Handicraft center, Khun-Khong Sub-district, Hang Dong district, Chiang Mai Province. Thailand. Years: Data were collected during September- December 2003. Concept or Variables Studied Together or Intervention and Outcome Variable (s): Health preventive behaviors Methods: Multidisciplinary approach (combined qualitative and quantitative methods) including focus group discussions, structured and unstructured interviews, and observation. Findings: This study found that most of health problems are usually caused by dust and chemical substance as well as the intensive and stressful works, incorrect and inappropriate pose while working, and long working hours to increase the productivity without paying attention to the physical condition. The major problems that they complained were backache, fatigue, allergy, eyestrain and accident. Although, all workers have to deal with works concerning the hazardous chemical substance usage, most workers seldom use any equipment to protect them during their working. Furthermore, other problems were lack of the sufficiently detailed information about health issue, and shortfall of the guarantee needed for labor welfare insurance. Conclusion: Health condition is considered as an important problem possibly facing female wood craving workers. Unfortunately, since the problem does not immediately cause the fatal danger to the workers, it is neglected by even themselves. Implication: Theses findings suggest that nurse should promote health preventive behaviors for female wood carving workers by enhancing health awareness for preventive behavior.
