In Citeureup Sub-district, Bogor, Indonesia, many MSMEs have developed their business around the metal sector. Despite many MSMEs operating in the area, there still a lack of OHS implementation. This study aimed to create an online database regarding business profile, OHS implementation, and health symptoms among workers at surveyed MSMEs. The survey was conducted to the 56 MSMEs located in Pasir Mukti Village, Citeureup District, Bogor Regency, Indonesia. The majority of MSMEs are micro-sized enterprises with 1-4 workers and produce metal products. Only 2% of MSMEs have an OHS commitment that is formally signed by the employer. The most prevalent hazards found in MSMEs were noise (71%), dust exposure (57%), and vibration (45%). Awkward postures and manual handlings are also commonly found in MSMEs. The most prevalent health symptom commonly experienced by workers is the soreness of the musculoskeletal system. There are six primary healthcare facilities located around MSMEs, yet only one facility operates for 24 hours and only 2 out of 6 facilities have an ambulance for emergencies.
