Abstract

Workplace accidents in an industry have caused substantial losses to business owners. If the business owner owns several industries, the losses will be even greater. Therefore, aspects of occupational safety and health (OSH) in the informal industry must be encouraged. Workplace accidents and diseases can be minimized by the presence of OSH in the midst of informal sector workers. The purpose of this study is to analyze the importance of measuring the working environment conditions in the coating unit of metal industry. This research method is descriptive because it does not involve treatment to the respondent. The instruments of this research are equipment to measure noise, work climate, and lighting that are present in the workplace. The questionnaire was used to determine respondents' perceptions related to noise conditions, work climate and lighting in the workplace. The study was conducted in June 2019 in the informal industry in the coating section in both painting and cleaning in metal manufacturing in Sidoarjo. The results of this study are as follows; the work climate is still within normal limits (27.8 ∘C). The average level of general lighting in the painting section is 117 lux and the cleaning section is 81 lux. The lighting is still below the maximum limit (200 lux). The results of noise measurements in the painting section are 78.6 dB and in the cleaning section are 64.0 dB, the figure is still below the threshold value (85 dB).
