Explanation:
1. The average number of workers employed daily should be calculated by dividing the aggregate number of attendance or working days (that is, man-days worked) by the number of working days in the year. In reckoning attendance, attendance by temporary as well as permanent workers employed should be counted, and all employees should be included, whether they are employed directly or under contractors. 

Attendance on separate shifts (e.g. night and day shifts) should be counted separately. Days on which the factory was closed for whatever cause and days on  which the manufacturing processes were not carried on should not be treated as working days, partial attendance for less than half a shift on a working day should be ignored, while attendance for half a shift or more on such day should be treated as full attendance.

2. For seasonal factories, the average number of workers employed during the working season and the off-season should be given separately. Similarly, the number of days worked and average number of man-hours worked per week during the working and off season should be given separately. 

3 . The average number of hours worked per week means the total actual hours worked by all workers during the year excluding the rest intervals but including overtime work divided by the product of total number of workers employed in the factory during the year and 52. In case, the factory has not worked for the whole year the number of weeks during which the factory worked should be used in place of the figure 52.

4. Every person killed or injured should be treated as one separate accident. If in one occurrence six persons were injured or killed, it should be counted as six accidents.

5. In item 16 (b) the number of accidents which took place during the year should be given. In case of non-fatal accidents only those accidents which prevented workers from working for 48 hours or more, should be indicated.

Enclosures to accompany return:
1. A Statement of the names and residential addresses of all the Directors/Partners.
2. A list of the processes declared as dangerous under Section 87 of the Factories Act, if any.
