Abstract
Objectives: Working conditions can exert influence on the physical, mental, and even social health of workers.
Well-being is an appropriate index for the evaluation of a person’s overall health. This paper investigated the association
between various working conditions and worker’s well-being.
Methods: Data from 10,019 interviews were collected from the second wave of the Korean Working Conditions Survey
(2010) conducted by the Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency between June and October 2010. The data from
5,995 employed workers were examined in this study. Well-being was measured through the WHO Five Well-Being Index
(1998 version). Sociodemographic and working conditions were analyzed. Adjusted odds ratios for well-being
were calculated with adjusted sociodemographic factors, working condition factors, or both.
Results: Workers’ well-being was significantly higher when they were satisfied with their working conditions
(OR = 1.656, 95% CI = 1.454–1.885), when their actual working hours were the same as their anticipated working
hours (OR = 1.366, 95% CI: 1.120–1.666) or exceeding less than 10 hours (OR = 1.245, 95% CI: 1.004-1.543), and
when their employment was stable (OR = 1.269, 95% CI: 1.098–1.467).
Conclusions: This study supports the association between working condition factors and well-being in workers.
Keywords: Working condition survey, Employed worker, Working conditions, Well-being
