This research aims to define the relationship between physical activity and smoking habit on bone mass in male industrial labors. The study is a preliminary study to recognize variables that influence bone mass and the base for defining the weight limit for lifting activities. This investigation was purposed determining physical activity and smoking habit of labors in the workplace, as well as calculating the bone mass of workers. The respondents required were 93 male labors in Padang, West Sumatra. Bone mass measuring tools were used to calculate labor's bone mass, while questionnaires were used to define the smoking habit of labors and physical activity. Physical activity, as well as smoking habit, were significantly affected the bone mass (p<0.05) of the workers.

The study was conducted by determining physical activity and smoking habit of labors in the workplace, as well as calculating the bone mass of labors. The respondents involved were 93 male labors in Padang, West Sumatra. Questionnaires were used to determine physical activity and smoking habit of labors, while bone mass measuring devices were used to calculate labor’s bone mass.
