Health is not something that one possesses as a commodity, but connotes rather a way of functioning within one’s environment (work, recreation, and living). Occupational environment plays a major role on the health of the exposed. The health hazards get more severe when the duration of exposure increases. Millions of traffic police spend majority of the working day standing and many hours in static positions. Standing uses 20% more energy than sitting because the human body is not designed to stand continuously at work. An descriptive study was conducted among 50 traffic police of selected traffic police station of Hubballi-Dharwad. Non-probability; Convenient sampling technique was used to select the sample and data was collected by structured knowledge questionnaire. The research design used for the study was descriptive. Data analysis was done by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Overall result of the study revealed that 02(4%) subjects had good knowledge, 39(78%) subjects had average knowledge and 09(18%) subjects had poor knowledge on varicose veins and its management. The study concluded that traffic police had average knowledge regarding prevention and management of varicose veins.
