The present study is a descriptive research design aimed at exploring the factors associated with work-life balance among occupational health nurses of Thailand. Data was collected using 455 questionnaires sent by mail, 287 of which were returned for a return rate of 50.98 percent. The related factors were analyzed using multiple linear regression.

According to the findings, the overall work-life balance of occupational health nurses is moderate with a mean (M) and standard deviation (SD) equal to 3.44 and 0.38, respectively. When categorized by individual factors, involvement balance was found to be high (M=3.58, SD = 0.52), while satisfaction balance and time balance were found to be moderate (M = 3.43, SD = 0.52 and M = 3.43, SD = 0.57). The factors associated with work-life balance included marital status, income sufficiency, age, family support, work experience, social support, number of hours worked, role ambiguity and role conflicts. The variables capable of co-predicting variances in work-life balance included age, income sufficiency, number of hours worked, role conflict, role ambiguity, and family support. The linear predictive coefficient was 37.0; therefore, the above predictive factors should be applied to the development of programs for promoting work-life balance for occupational health nurses in the future.
