Background & aim: Work is an important component of QOL therefore work-related factors could be a significant predictor in this respect.The current study was aimed to asses QOL and its association with socio-demographic, health and work-related factors in two factories in Yasuj, Iran. Methods: In the present cross-sectional study, participants were 280 workers of two factories. The Persian version of World Health Organization Quality of Life-Brief (WHOQOL-BREF) was used to assess the QOL. A questionnaire was developed to assess the socio-demographic, health and work-related factors. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Results: The present study revealed that the means (SD) of physical health, psychological health, social relationships, and environment domains of QOL were 13.2 (2.7), 13.3 (2.6), 14.2 (3.5) and 12.6 (2.5), respectively. A multiple linear regression demonstrated that the types of job, exercise activity, working schedule, sleep quality, smoking, and conflict between work and social life were associated with physical health domain whereas, working schedule, marital status, working demand, sleep quality, BMI, and conflict between work and individual life were significantly associated with psychological health domain. Working schedule, working demand, sleep quality, conflict between work and individual life were significantly associated with social relationship domain however, working demand, working schedule, smoking, sleep quality, working hour, job satisfaction, marital status and exercise activity were significantly associated with environment domain. Conclusion: To improve workers' QOL, the intervention programs should focus on improving work environment, working schedule, occupational training and restricting working hours.
