POST-TRAUMA PSYCHOSOCIAL BURDEN DUE TO OCCUPATIONAL ACCIDENTS & INJURY OF DISABLED WORKERS: NEED FOR PROFESSIONAL POST TRAUMA MANAGEMENT INTERVENTION INTERVENTION
The Post-trauma burden, stress, strain, difficulties faced by victim & family members are too severe and damaging, if one is looking at providing safe work community for Industrial worker population. Infact, effects of occupational accidents in Industry and after-math burden faced are a mainstream Labour problem that rarely receives management and community attention. At the same time, we must also recognize that every father, every young man & young women killed or disabled at work is a loss to our community & to our future as a nation. A child grows without a parent, parents grow old without children, and community is at great lose. A total family disorganization prevails which has an adverse Psychosocial adjustmental influence on daily functioning of the victim and the family members, per se.

The intervention was done at 3 stages: (a) knowing how they felt immediate after the incidence (post-responses), (b) after few days of hospitalization (in hospital), and (c) presently after the incidence, i.e. after long span of time and before joining back to work. III. Methods A population of more than 60 employee (Major Disabled Victims) from five industries involving all the MDI was the focus group. MDI, major disabling injury, cause much after math difficulties & lead to lot of adjustmental problems for the worker(s) at work place, and family living, thus, MDI was of crucial in studying. It was also felt the need for Professionalisation of Industrial Social Work: An Arena to practice, and how it has to be undertaken. V. Conclusion : The role of a separate person, especially, a person from the background of Rehabilitation is looked for. And, PISW…. Professionalisation of Industrial Social Work role is immense & timely in such situation, because by virtue of training in psychosocial area by PISW, psychosocial welfare of affected ones & their families can be taken care off to greater extent. The research strongly supports the importance of Psychosocial help rather than financial help in building a healthy winning workplace, thus, creating an organization to work with. The paper places high standards on the role that PISW would be rendering for greater Social Welfare of the disabled victim. If the situation is similar at other Asian- Pacific countries, then the present paper will be of great help for discussion and finding concrete solutions. A movement in this direction throughout ASIA will be an apt step by all SOCIAL WORKERS in joining hands and relieving the sufferings of the disabled working class and Post trauma Management. IV. Result The results with corresponding value showed a high level of significant relation between accident, resultant injury and post- trauma psychosocial burden undergone. Infact, there was high level of significant co-relation between injury, burden and difficulties undergone, especially for those families with lack of better economic standing. Psychological disturbance was experienced much during hospitalization & at home, with high symptoms of irritability, depression, nightmare, worry and anxiety provoking behaviors. Infact, on sociological area, there was lot of disturbance in family social relation, daily activity, high level of helplessness & more dependency.
