ABSTRACT

This research is about the job satisfaction of factory workers with a hearing disorder. I commissioned the survey with 30 people working in the companies of more than 100 employees. They were twenty men and ten women from their 20s to 50s in the survey. A sign language interpreter performed the survey to help them fully understand the each question.As a result, quite a few workers answered that they were stressed about their tasks. The main cause was rooted in the human relationship between normal workers and handicapped workers. They were unable to communicate sufficiently because of the hearing problems.Secondly, most workers answered that they were satisfied with their wages and on-duty hours. However, in the satisfaction measurement about job environment and welfare, they showed less contentment.In summary, I found out that many workers with hearing disorder were stressed by unsatisfactory communication. Also, the lack of availability of sign language interpretation and counselling services increased their stress.
