Having a large number of employees, enterprises operating in industrial zones must pay attention to working conditions and other issues for workers. One of the most important issues of concern is the material and mental life of workers.

A healthy mental life ensures brings positive mood, motivation, attitude and effective working behaviors. Inadequate material and mental life reduces workers’ productivity and thus influences firms’ growth. Ensuring material and mental life for workers in industrial zones is a prerequisite in boosting productivity and achieving sustainable development.

Low income was the main hindrance to a sufficient material life and a rich mental life of workers. In addition, low quality of meal and working conditions had significant impacts to their health. The results were discussed in relation to previous studies on the life of workers in industrial parks.
