Abstract—Objective: The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between age, working period and work duration with work fatigue on the driver of the pedycab in North Kotamobagu District North Sulawesi Indonesia. Method: This type of research is a survey research that is analytic observational with cross sectional approach applied in January - May 2016. Respondents in this research are the pedycab drivers in Bilalang I and Bilalang II villages with a total sample of 38. Instruments used is the Work Fatigue Measurement Questionnaire (KAUPK2). Data analysis was done by using Chi-Square statistical test. Independent variables studied were age, work period and duration of work. Result: Based on the results of the research that there are 18 driver who experienced fatigue category and there are 20 drivers in very tired category. There was a significant correlation between age with the work fatigue of driver (P = 0,000), there was a significant relationship between the working period with the working fatigue of driver (P = 0,000), and there was a significant relationship between work duration with the work fatigue of driver (P = 0.000). Suggestion: There is a need for different working time setting for the pedycab drivers. Because the pedycab design is performed by the workshop based only on experience, it is necessary to conduct research on the design of the pedycab according to the anthropometry of the driver.
