Indian textiles contribute to 3.5-4% of the textile exports in the world market. Indian textile industry is one of the leading textile industries in the world and second largest industry in India after agricultural industry. Textile industry of India has started shifting from the unorganised to organised business culture after the economic liberalization in the early 90’s. Textile industry in India provides employment to 35 million people directly and indirectly and being the largest foreign exchange revenue generating sector in the country. The industry being highly labour intensive the need for the textile organisations to retain their labour is highly important in recent days. Working conditions and safety measures being important aspect of the workplace and the need for concentration in these aspects is very much higher for the textile organisations to retain their workforce. In our research employee’s perceptions are obtained to develop and enhance the working conditions and safety measures in the textile units.
