To explore sociological implications of environmental hazards arising due to industrial pollution on industrial workers during their work in the environment they work and also to find out whether it affects their social and other associated behaviors in an industrial organization. The study is based on exploratory cum descriptive study design and the cross-sectional data. The analytical sample consists of 500 workers from all three stratified categories- skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled and using univariate analysis method the data has been analyzed.
We found that industrial workers are clearly showing their concerns arising due to environ-mental hazards at their work place and they indicate several implications because of situation in which they work.
