Background: This study was carried out aimed to investigate the effect of anxiety caused by Covid-19 on the quality of life of people working in the industrial sector. Methods: 212 people working in the industrial sector participated in a descriptive cross-sectional study using multi-stage random sampling. Data was collected using the Demographic Information Questionnaire, the Corona Disease Anxiety Scale (CDAS) and The World Health Organization Quality of Life–BREF (WHOQOL-BREF). SPSS statistical software version 24 was used for data analysis. The significance level of 0.05 is considered. Results: The mean age of participants was 33.27±6.6 years, 78.8% were male and 79.3% (168 people) were married. The mean scores of CDAS and WHOQOL-BREF were 11.60±8.2 and 64.66±10.8, respectively. The highest and lowest score of WHOQOL-BREF belonged to the dimensions of social relationships and mental health, respectively. There was a significant inverse correlation between CDAS and WHOQOL-BREF (P<0.001 and r = -0.656). Women had higher anxiety scores and lower quality of life than men. Individuals with a family member over 65 years of age or a member with a chronic illness had significantly higher mean anxiety scores and lower mean quality of life scores compared to other individuals. Conclusion: The results of this study show that the quality of life of employees in the industrial sector increases with reducing their anxiety. Therefore, it is recommended that factory managers take necessary measures to identify and eliminate the causes of anxiety to increase the quality of life and productivity of employees.
