Factory, Health Care, Working Conditions, Workers.


Occupational Health care is a critical issue emerging in factories. The paper proceeds with an objective to develop a theoretical framework for developing an occupational health care management and to discuss the construct of the framework in detail. The research is a desk based research. Literature and secondary data research has been conducted to develop a conceptual framework for developing an occupational health care management in factories. Career growth, working conditions, health laws, incentives, performance appraisal, medical assurance and few other elements have been extracted from the literature to build up a conceptual framework. These elements and their importance in developing an occupational health care management have been discussed. The conceptual framework can be used to develop an occupational health care management.
