Introduction: Musculoskeletal disorders in the long term caused by physical activity involving muscle strength accompanied by excessive loading and repeated over a long period of time are called musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Methods: This study used a quantitative method with a cross-sectional design. The population of this study is the operational officers of the Central Jakarta administration city fire prevention and rescue sub-department in 2021, amounting to 665 people and a sample of 222 people. Data analysis used univariate, bivariate (chi-square test), and multivariate tests.

Results: The results of this study indicate that there is a relationship between exercise habits and MSDs complaints with a p-value = 0,022, there is no relationship between body mass index and MSDs complaints with a p-value = 0,107 and there is a relationship between work postures with a p-value = 0,027. The R2 value of 0,205 means that 20,5% of MSDs complaints are influenced by the variables of exercise habits and work postures together.

Discussion: Physical activity can increase the flow of oxygen to the tissues thereby increasing muscle ability which can reduce the risk or severity of MSDs. Working in a sitting position for a long time can cause the abdominal muscles to become more elastic, the spine to curve, and the eye muscles to concentrate, and therefore feel tired quickly.
