As society enters a new era and the labor market enters a stage of high-quality development, focusing on adhering to the work philosophy of employee health as the core, it is necessary to propose research propositions that better meet the needs of the impact of overtime status on lumbar spine health. This paper mainly analyzes the frequency and duration of overtime work, the situation in different industries, and the correlation between the time period and the nature of the work. The relationship between overtime and lumbar spine health was explored, and the types, symptoms, and extent of lumbar spine problems caused by overtime were revealed, as well as the role of psychological and physiological factors. Subsequently, improvement strategies were implemented, including suggestions on health education and prevention, work environment improvement, and mental health support. The study believes that by improving employees' awareness of lumbar spine health, improving the working environment, and providing psychological support, the negative impact of overtime on lumbar spine health can be effectively reduced, and employees' quality of life can be improved.
