Abstract

The first Zanzibar Working Conditions Survey, carried out in 2010, found that the incidence of physical risks, namely exposure to vibrations, noise and high temperatures, is considerably high. Hearing problems and respiratory problems are particularly prominent in manufacturing, whereas shoulder and neck problems, injuries, stress and skin problems seem to affect a considerable proportion of workers in the hotels and restaurants sector. Overall, working conditions in Zanzibar vary considerably across sectors but are, in general, characterised by a relatively high incidence of physical risks and work-related health problems.
