||Questionnaire surveys of Swedish and Indonesian assembly industry workers showed that the prevalence of musculoskeletal symptoms was high in both groups. Swedish workers reported more stress and psychosomatic symptoms and rated their work conditions as worse in most respects. Work tasks were physically heavier in Indonesia, but less monotonous and with lower demands on productivity. Physical job demands were associated with musculoskeletal symptoms, while conflicts and harassment at work were associated with stress and psychosomatic symptoms. Implications for job design in the two countries are put forward.
