This study evaluated the psychometric properties of the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES) and the Oldenburg Burnout Inventory (OLBI) within a cement factory. Respondents were 187 employees (males =168, females =19) from a cement factory in the North West province of South Africa. Exploratory factor analysis was used to determine the structure of the measure and concurrent validity of the measures was also examined. Both measures were two dimensional in structure. Concurrent validity of the instruments was consistent with the theory behind the measures.
