Abstract: Hairdressers are an informal service working group who are at risk of work-related health problems. This descriptive study aimed to examine health status related to risk at work among informal hairdressers. The study sample comprised 118 hairdressers in Hang Dong District, Chiang Mai Province. Data collection was carried out during December 2013 and March 2014. The study instrument was an interview form of health status related to risk at work among informal hairdressers created from literature review with content validity confirmed by a panel of experts. The content validity index was 1. The reliability was tested and its value was at the acceptable level (0.80-0.82). Data analysis was performed by using descriptive statistics. The main results revealed that the most significant illnesses possibly related to exposure to occupational hazards perceived by the study sample included musculoskeletal pain such as wrist and hand pain (73.73%), and shoulder pain (70.34%). They also indicated work-related stress from rushing work tasks (42.37%), respiratory and skin disorders including difficulty breathing (35.59%) and skin rash (23.73%), and vision disorders including blurred vision (30.51%). A work-related injury incurred during the past three months was 38.41 percent. The injury causation was related to cuts from sharp instruments (48.77%). The injuries included lacerated and superficial wound (48.15%). The most commonly injured body parts were hands, wrists and finger (56.17%), which were non-fatal injuries and without taking a day off (97.78%). The findings of this study indicates that occupational health nurses and related health care team should recognize the significance of health and safety dissemination for reducing health risks and promoting better workplace environments for informal hairdressers.
