Noise Mapping and Noise Influence on Blood Pressure and Pulse of Workers in an Power Plant Company in Kendari
AbstractBased on the Mann Whitney U test, there was a difference in blood pressure based on the level of noise intensity on the workers in The Power Plant Company, Kendari with p value = 0,000, and there was a difference of the pulse based on the level of noise intensity of the workers in The Power Plant Company, Kendari with p value = 0,000. Conclusion; The level of noise intensity in the industry can affect the blood pressure and pulse of exposed workers. Recommendation; workers are expected to be obliged to use Ear Protector in the red zone.The Power Plant Company in Kendari is a government-owned company that operates diesel engines as power plants located in Wua-Wua District, Kendari City and is one of the industries that produce high noise. This is because diesel engines as power plants are used to meet the electricity needs of Kendari City residents. The study aimed to describe the noise intensity which is then illustrated with noise contour map and to know the difference of blood pressure and pulse as the result of exposure to noise intensity in workers in an The Power Plant Company, Kendari. The study was an observational analytic study with cross sectional study design. The sample of the study were 54 people. The measuring instrument used was the Sound Level Meter Lutron SL-4001 and questionnaire. The analysis used was the Mann Whitney U test. The results showed that the noise level in this area ranges from 62-96 dB range. The highest noise level 92-96 dB was in the Engine Room and the Engine Rental room.
