Low Back Pain (LBP) is a sensation of pain in the lower back that may derives from the spine, muscle, nerve, and other structures around the area. Factors that possibly contribute to LBP are including individual factors, occupational factors and environmental factors. Manual material handling (MMH) is still unavoided to do a job as a fisherman especially in Kankung Village. Our preliminary study found that 9 of 10 fisherman in Kangkung village had a complain of pain at the lower back of the body. This study was aimed to determine the association between MMH technique, age, body mass index (BMI), work period, load mass and lifting frequency with the occurance of LBP. This research was an observational study with cross sectional design. This studi involved 101 subjects which were taken by consecutive sampling technique. Data was collected by interview and physical examination using Lasseque test to determine LBP. Independent variables were age, BMI, MMH technique, work period, load mass and lifting frequency. The dependent variable was LBP. Data was analyzed with Chi-square test (á=0.05). Prevalence of LBP among fisherman in Kangkung Village was 81.2%. There was a significant association between age (p= 0.001), BMI (p= 0.011), MMH technique (p= 0.003), work period (p= 0.001), load mass (p= 0.001), lifting frequency (p= 0.012) with the occurance of LBP. Age, BMI, work periode, MMH technique, load mass and lifting frequency are the risk factor of LBP among fisherman. An ergonomic work procedure is urgently apllied to prevent LBP.
