Background and aims: The relationship between health related quality of life (HRQOL) and psychosocial factors have not been investigated among Iranian industrial workers. The present study is designed to assess these relationships among the workers from a cosmetic factories Yasuj city.

Methods: This cross-sectional study was designed on 167 workers of factory. Psychosocial factors and health related quality of life were measured by the Persian versions of Job Content Questionnaire (P-JCQ) and the Persian version of World Health Organization Quality of Life-Brief (P-WHOQOL-BREF). An author-developed measure was used to assess socio-demographic, health, and work-related factors.

Results: Means (SDs) for physical health, psychological health, social relationships, and environmental domains of HRQOL were: 13.4 (2.9) 13.8 (2.7) 14.5 (3.5) and 13.1 (2.4), respectively. Hierarchical multiple linear regression analysis indicated that supervisor supports, sleep quality and working schedule factors were significant predictors of domains of HRQOL.
