Abstract—People occupied in beedi manufacturing are facing a number of health risks. This study examine whether there is an association between the work duration and the level of occupational illness. It also tests if the occurrence of occupational health issues is dependent of gender. The results are based on a survey schedule conducted at four different areas of Chavakkad Panchayat of Thrissur district in Kerala among 60 respondents engaged in beedi rolling. Chi-Square test for independence of attributes and Kruskal-Wallis Test is used to test the hypothesis. It is inferred that longer work spans makes instances of occupational health issues more likely. However there was not enough evidence to assert that women are more prone to be occupationally ill.
