Abstract

Work noise and stress do not only appear in industrial areas but also in public places like the Bus Station. One of the risk factors at the bus station is noise and work stress. This study aims to determine the relationship between traffic noise and work stress with blood pressure. research methods with observational analytic and cross sectional approaches. The population is 95 Tirtonadi Bus Station field workers. Sampling by simple random sampling and get 50 respondents as samples. The instrument used a Sound Level Meter to measure noise, Job Stress Questionnaire based on from Minister of Manpower regulations No. 5 of 2018 to assess work stress and Spyghmomanometer Aneroids to measure blood pressure. Independent and dependent variables are calculated by the Spearman rank test. Test results show an intermediate p-value traffic noise with blood pressure of 0.813 and 0.715. work stress with systolic and diastolic blood pressure shows p-values of 0.037 and 0.047. Conclusions There is no significant relationship between noise and blood pressure. There is a relationship between work stress and blood pressure.
