Abstract

The high number of work accidents in Indonesia requires handling efforts from various indirect aspects; one of the efforts is safety and health education in the student curriculum. A preliminary study of this research aims at identifying the hazard and risk factors in the schools, analyzing the level of student knowledge about safety and health, and observing information from the school about safety and health implementation at school. This research was a descriptive quantitative approach at Siman Elementary School, Ponorogo. The subjects of this research were students in grades IV, V and VI using purposive sampling. Based on the results of the hazard identification, it could be summed up that the highest danger came form the use of chalk, liquid petroleum gas, and bacterial contamination in school canteens and slippery floors. The average of student knowledge about safety and health is at a moderate level (81%). The lowest student knowledge (medium level) in the safety aspect is about safety riding (73%) and the health aspect is about bullying (79%). Siman Elementary School Ponorogo has not been committed to the implementation of safety and health education as there is no command from the provincial level leaders as well as the ministries. The curriculum should include safety and health aspect to familiarize its behavior in early childhood.
