Abstract
Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate factors associated with sleep disorders in male firefighters
working in a metropolitan city in South Korea.
Methods: Self-administered questionnaires including the Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire, Korean
Occupational Stress Scale-Short Form, Psychosocial Well-Being Index-Short Form, Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index, and
Beck-Depression Inventory-2 as well as surveys collecting socio-demographic characteristics and work-related factors
were given to 730 male firefighters. After exclusion for missing data, 657 male firefighters were included, and
logistic regression analysis adjusted for the work-related factors, psychosocial factors, and general risk factors were
used to assess the relationship between sleep disorders and associated factors.
Results: The prevalence of sleep disorders was 48.7%. Shift work (adjusted OR 1.58, 95% CI = 1.02-2.45),
musculoskeletal symptoms (adjusted OR 2.89, 95% CI = 2.02-4.14), and depression (adjusted OR 7.04 95% CI = 4.03-12.30)
were associated with sleep disorders.
Conclusions: Musculoskeletal symptoms, shift work, and depression are associated with sleep disorders. Integrated health
management is needed to promote good sleep quality among firefighters.
Keywords: Sleep disorders, Risk factors, Firefighters
