Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine health status among employees of Assembly Services Sdn Bhd, Shah Alam, Selangor Darul Ehsan (ASSB). This study was to examine whether the workers' health status is significantly influenced when they perform physical activity, by their nutrition behavior and smoking habits. This study distributed 400 questionnaires among ASSB employees. The sample size was from all levels of employees which include seven main divisions, 75% operational staff and 25% managerial staff. 366 feedbacks were received and only 357 were valid in the analysis. The data was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software version 19.0. Correlation analysis was conducted to test the relationship between health status and physical activity, nutritional behaviour and smoking habits. The finding of this study showed that physical activity, nutritional behaviour and smoking habits have negative relationship to health status. However, multiple regression analysis result indicated that only nutrition behavior and smoking habit do influence health status, whereas physical activity does not influence health status. Recommendations on how to improve health status are discussed and it is absolutely important and also beneficial to the entire company
