Abstract

Varicose veins, a common venous disorder, occur when the veins become dilated and twisted due to 
prolonged stress and strain. Normally, the one-way valves in the veins prevent blood from flowing 
backwards. However, when these valves fail, blood collects and pools in the vein rather than continuing 
its journey to the heart. Varicose veins predominantly affect the lower extremities, particularly the legs, 
as they are farthest from the heart and must work against gravity to return blood upward. This uphill 
battle against gravity makes it harder for blood to flow efficiently, leading to vein dilation and the 
formation of varicosities.2 Varicose veins are a prevalent vascular condition characterized by the 
enlargement and twisting of veins, primarily in the lower extremities. It is a common chronic disorder 
affecting individuals of various age groups and occupations. However, certain occupational groups, 
particularly those involved in industrial work, may face a higher risk of developing varicose veins due 
to the nature of their work environment and job-related activities. Industrial workers often engage in 
prolonged standing or sitting positions, repetitive movements, heavy lifting, and exposure to factors 
such as vibration, heat, and hazardous substances. These factors, combined with the lack of 
opportunities for regular leg movement and inadequate ergonomic measures, contribute to the 
increased likelihood of developing varicose veins. The prevalence of varicose veins among industrial 
workers raises concerns regarding the occupational health and wellbeing of this specific population
