To know the environmental effect on workers working different type of work total 50 men workers selected as subject among them 25 office workers working in Bilaspur Railway office section and 25 manufacturing workers working in spin packaging industry Bilaspur. The age was ranging between 25 to 35 years. For the purpose of the present study keeping the possibility standard in mind, the researcher has selected Leg and Back strength as independent variables. To find out the nature of the data and difference between office workers and construction workers descriptive statistics and independent t-test was applied. All statistics were calculated with SPSS 16.0. Level of significance was set at 0.05. The mean Scores of Office workers & Manufacturing workers of Leg Strength are 120.68 & 135.94 and S.D. 5.163 & 2.732 respectively. The obtained t-value 13.067 is significant at 0.05 level. After the analysis of data on the basis of outcome it is clear that in the matter of Leg Strength significant difference was found between Office workers and manufacturing workers (t = 13.067, p < 05). On the basis of findings it is clear that significant difference was found on Back Strength between Office workers and Manufacturing workers (t = 5.672, p < 05).
