BACKGROUND: Occupational safety and health are health sciences that are applied through work and the work environment to obtain the highest degree of health both physically, mentally, and socially through preventive and curative efforts in the workplace. The emergence of work fatigue in workers is evidence of a decrease in bodily functions caused by both individual factors and the work environment so that precautions are needed.

AIM: This study aimed to see the effect of workplace stretching exercise on work fatigue in workers at PT. X International, Indonesia.

METHODS: This study used a quasi-experimental study with one group pre-test and post-test design. Respondents were 30 people selected by purposive sampling and met the study inclusion criteria. The provision of workplace stretching exercises was carried out for 15 working days and is given every 10 am after workers work for 2 h.

RESULTS: The mean of work fatigue before intervention (pre-test) is 454.8133 and the average work fatigue after an intervention (post-test) is 321.9133 so that there are differences in the average work fatigue before and after the intervention.

CONCLUSION: Workplace stretching exercise intervention affects reducing work fatigue in production workers of PT. X International Indonesia.
