The cost of plant and equipment which is at the of every worker is so high that companies cannot rd to allow people to use such plant or equipment unless are capable of using it effectively, safely andProductivity and it is not safe or the worker to learn 11 w by himself.

The major limitation of the study is the short time frame the research lasted, coupled with the tight academic time table, which prevented a very comprehensive study.The money available to the researcher was also limited and therefore the study was limited to a small portion of the survey population.
Another limitation is the difficulties, encountered by the researcher in obtaining all needed information and materials from the right sourcc and compilation of data for the project.
