ABSTRACT

 

This reserach aims to examine whether the characteristics of workers, the job and the total levels of inhaled particles are risk factors for pulmonary function disorders on car painting workers. The type of this research was observational research with a cross sectional design. The population were car painting workers in Palu. The sample were 96 workers selected using simple random sampling. The researcher used a questionnaire to collect smoking status data, number of cigarettes a day, working period, total of working hours and the use of masks. The researcher also uses a spirometer to measure pulmonary function variables with the Mod Mode of Dat 120B. The results showed a relationship between the use of masks and pulmonary function (p-value = 0.021) is weak relationship (Phi coefficient ϕ = 0.23); the relationship between working period and pulmonary function (p-value = 0.015) is weak relationship (Phi coefficient ϕ = 0.28) the prevalence ratio 3.33 (95% CI = 1.33-8.36); while the factors of smoking habits, total of working hours and the use of masks are not significantly related to pulmonary function. Thus, it can be concluded that the use of masks and working period are risk factors for pulmonary disorders. So that workers are advised to use masks and regulate working hours to prevent the risk of pulmonary disorders.

Keywords : Pulmonary function disorders, masks, working hours
