Abstract :

Noise can cause different responses to one worker to another. The health effect of noise can affect to auditory. PT. INKA is an industry which run in railways by making and maintaining train, thus in its process there is possibility of noise risk. Moreover, audiometry test has not been held here. This research was established to find out the correlation between intensity of noise with hearing loss in worker. The objectives was accomplished using case control design with quantitative approach. Interviews were executed to the head of Occupational Safety and Health, 15 workers in welding 1 and 15 workers in office. Interviews were achieved to gain information about variables. The variables were divided into independent and dependent variables. The independent variables were the intensity of noise, age, years of work and the habit of using earplug. Furthermore the dependent variable was hearing loss in worker. The intensity of noise in welding 1 work area exceeds the NAB (94.8 dBA) while in office work is 63,2 dBA. The amount of hearing loss in workers for the exposed group is 4 respondents (26,7%) and for the unexposed group is 7 respondents (46,7%). The statistical analysis showed that there was no correlation between the intensity of noise with hearing loss which occurs in workers. The conclusion is hearing loss in worker has not necessarily caused by high intensity in work area but by another factors.
