This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders and factors associated with work-related musculoskeletal disorders in commercial motorcyclists in Indonesia. An anonymous, cross-sectional survey incorporating the Indonesian Version of the Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire, occupational driving posture questionnaire, and occupational factor-related questions was distributed to commercial motorcyclists in four shelters located in Central Jakarta, Indonesia in September of 2021. Descriptive statistics, chi-square test, student’s t-test, and multivariate logistic regression analysis were utilized. A total of 322 commercial motorcyclists completed the questionnaire. The result showed that 40% of participants were having work-related musculoskeletal disorders. According to body part, the highest prevalence was found in the waist and thigh (40.3%), followed by neck (37.2%) and shoulder (36.4%). A logistic regression model indicated that after adjusting for all possible risk factors, older age, overweight body mass index, obese body mass index, no regular physical activity, longer driving duration, longer seniority, and poor driving posture were significant risk factors for work-related musculoskeletal disorders in commercial motorcyclists. In Indonesia, a significant number of commercial motorcyclists suffered from work-related musculoskeletal disorders, especially in the body parts of waist and thigh. Age, body mass index, regular physical activity, driving duration, seniority, and posture were factors significantly associated with work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Based on the risk factors identified in this study, development of preventive strategies among commercial motorcyclists is warranted.
