Half of the world’s labour force is directly depends on the agricultural sector (Forastieri, 1999) and significant amount of labour force for agricultural sector is contributed from the Industrially Developing Countries (IDC), and countries in Asia and Africa, women found a great opportunity of labour (O’Neill, 2000). Females of developing nations engaged in the agricultural sector are contributing much too rural development by earning a supportable income for their families. Industrial revolution washed off most of the agricultural land/work force in the urban area but the rural people of both developed and developing countries are still stuck on agricultural sector/farming and subsequently as the source of revenue for both males and females.…show more content…
Standardised works maintain productivity, quality and safety at a high level and have a sequence of jobs or elemental activities efficiently organised and repeated to achieve a predetermined output consistently. Standardised works are conducted with a well-defined procedure in an even environment with a worker-friendly equipment/tools/machinery/ implement in a scheduled time. The main advantages of standardised works are improved productivity, quality and safety with reduced labour, cost, material and occupational hazards. Commonly all industrial type jobs and corporate type jobs, are standardised to reach the targeted production, efficiency and…show more content…
General activities in farming such as soil preparation/ploughing, seeding, watering, harvesting etc. requires external power are performed generally with the help of man power, cattle power and machine power. In IDCs major power sources are man power and cattle power. Technological advances in the method of production can able to regulate the labour flow and ergonomically modified implements can increase their productivity, comfort and decreases the chances of occupational hazards. Existing development in the agricultural sector is not yet able to bring significant change in the farming method of rural people. Economic affordability bans the admittance of these technologies in rural areas. Lack of anthropometric database of rural people is also another reason delays ergonomic involvement. Anthropometry holds heterogeneity over gender, age, race, region, ethnic, geographic, latitude and longitude, altitude, nutrition and several confounding variables (Bharati et al., 2005) which challenges anthropologist for the preparation of
