Introduction: Anthropometric has an important role in industrial management and also occupational health and it is needed that its information collected regularly. Even though before anthropometric among different Iranian nations have not been studied, present research has been done aimed to evaluation the different anthropometric factors in Iranian workers, in six Iranian nations and preparing the informatics database including their anthropometric dimensions. These information could be help for designers, engineers, and public health people. 

Methods: In present research, data about 3716 people samples, including 2965 male and 751 female have been studied. The study population were the Iranian workers aged between 20-60 and study environments were 9 Iranian universities which including six nations: Fars, Kord, Turk, Lor, Balouch, and Arab. Thirty six body dimensions, and also body weights of workers - chosen randomly- measured as static method. Additionally, a questioners included demographic identities questions of the samples have been collected. Rated vertical planes with 2*1 meters dimension, small and large calipers, measurement elastic bond, and scale weight to measure body dimensions has been used. All measurements has been done in either seated or stand up standard situation.

Results: Our results showed that the average height in Iranian workers were 172 cm. for male and for female 158 cm. Also average weight for male were 74 kg, and for female 58 kg .WE found a statistically significant difference between male and female heights and weights (p<0.0000).The 5th percentile for petit men are almost equal to 50th percentile to medium women.

Conclusions: The difference between male and female workers body dimensions showed the necessities of chosen some method to design products and equipments.
