This study aimed to know the correlation between knowledge and incident of metabolic syndrome in container crane operators. The design of the study was observational method and conducted by cross sectional approach in an international container terminal facilities company in Surabaya. The independent variable was knowledge of metabolic syndrome using questionnaires method. The dependent variable was metabolic syndrome using International Diabetes Federation criteria. The number of population was 68 container crane operators and 40 operators as the samples were taken randomly. The results showed that knowledge did not have significant correlation with metabolic syndrome incident. Considering the study’s result, the company needs to find other cause of the metabolic syndrome in their container crane operator population and find effective health promotion in metabolic syndrome prevention.
