Background: Today with industry growth, hazards are increasing respectively. One of the most important parts of these industries are human resources and employee, that face with many various hazards, so to protect them and increase productivity this hazard must be identified and analyzed then controlled.
Methods: This cross-sectional study focus on risk identification and assessment in the spinning sector of the textile industry as an important and strategic industry using Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) method. FMEA as one of the systematic risk assessment technique applied to each unit of the spinning sector to find out potential failure mods and its effects. Risk priority number, severity, detection and occurrence are the factors used for assessing safety condition. Based on this method If the is RPN≤ 89, the risk is acceptable and if RPN is≥90 risk is unacceptable. For data gathering FMEA team used different methods include FMEA worksheet, risk detecting checklist, walking, talking, process technical plots and documents.
Results: The finding represented 58 risks in 6 units of the spinning sector. 36.29% of risks were at a high level (unacceptable), 50% were in middle level (unacceptable) and 13.8% were in Low level (acceptable). In the packing unit, the number of identified risks were more than another and in flyer unit, the number of risks was lower than another. Lifting heavy loud in the packing unit has the highest RPN (384) and bobbin falling down in ring unit has the lowest RPN (24).
Conclusion: As mentioned above more than 80% of detect risk were unacceptable that showed hazardous condition for workers in this industry. So the implementation of safety and health measures such as engineering controls, management controls, and safety training programs and tools in the work environment is necessary
