This cross-sectional study aimed to examine the risk factors for cerebrovascular disease among bank officers at risk. An occupational health and safety framework was used in this research. A sample of 288 Bank officers at risk who were 35 years or older with at least either diabetes mellitus, hypertension or high blood cholesterol were selected by simple random sampling. The data were collected using self-administered-questionnaires. Data were reported/analyzed by descriptive statistics and logistic regression analysis.

The results of the study revealed that 53.8 percent of the bank officers at risk had high risk of cerebrovascular disease. Logistic regression analysis indicated that alcohol consumption(OR=2.46, 95%CI:1.01-5.97), knowledge of cerebrovascular disease (OR=9.07, 95%CI :1.74-47.24),work stress(OR=13.43, 95% CI : 5.56-32.46) , prolonged sitting(OR=11.92, 95% CI:5.23-27.17)and work urgency(OR=3.58, 95% CI:1.53-8.40) were related to the risk of cerebrovascular disease among bank officers at risk.

The results of the study suggested that to reduce the risk of cerebrovascular diseases, occupational health nurses at medical service units should arrange for training to promote knowledge on disease prevention, emphasize the effect of risk at work. Annual cerebrovascular disease risk screening and post-risk evaluation management guidelines and treatment reference guidelines should also be developed.
