The levels of occupational health and safety, socioeconomic development of a country, quality of life and wellbeing of working people are not closely linked with each other but also influence each other but also influence each other. This suggests that intellectual and economic inputs on occupational health care are not burdens but have a positive and protective impact on the company and national economy. This occupational health is an important factors for sustainable socio-economic development that enables workers to enjoy a healthy and productive life both throughout their active working years and beyond, especially after their retirement. The present study aims to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching program on respiratory tract infection and its prevention among weavers. A quasi experimental research design was conducted among 60 weavers. The demographic data was collected using structured interview questionnaire. The pre-test knowledge was assessed using the structured questionnaire. The samples were given video assisted teaching on respiratory infection and its management and then after 2 days, the post test was done. The study results show that the level of knowledge considerably increased in the post test at p<0.005. This indicates video assisted teaching is cost effective and can be easily understood by the weavers to gain knowledge. The result of the study is it was concluded that that video assisted teaching is the effective and easy method to improve knowledge among weavers. The knowledge on prevention helps to reduce the morbidity rate of respiratory infection among weavers.
