ABSTRACT

Benzene is well-known as a carcinogen and one of work related disease causes. High level benzene exposure causes nerve and blood forming disruption,

One of benzene biomarker is a S-PMA (S-phenylmercapturic acid). The question appear “Is there correlation between knowledge level and attitude obedient of cartridge respirator equipment usage with the S-PMA urine value of production worker”. Purpose of this research is to observe the correlation of knowledge level and attitude obedient e of cartridge respirator equipment usage with the S-PMA urine value of production worker in PT. TI, East Kalimantan.

This  research  methode  is  an  observasional  quantitative,  time  approach  “cross  sectional”  and descriptive data analysis. Total sample is 86 responden from both process and well department. Data collestion   using   questionaire   and   seconder   data  of   benzene,  S-PMA   and   passive  sampler measurement.

Knowledge level and attitude obedient of cartridge respirator equipment usage is appearing good (94,2%). Knowledge level of cartridge respirator equipment usage affect the S-PMA urine value(Pearson correlation r = 0,097).

The attitude obedient of cartridge respirator equipment usage affect the S-PMA urine value (Pearson correlation r = 0,195). Knowledge level and attitude obedient of cartridge respirator equipment usage is appearing good.There’s  a  correlation  between  knowledge  level  and  attitude  obedient  of  cartridge  respirator equipment usage with the S-PMA urine value of production worker. The implementation and supervision of Benzene Management program in parrarel of cartridge and Respirator usage should be continue and must be perfomed well supervision.

Keywords: knowledge, attitude, obedient, cartridge respirator, S-PMA (S-phenylmercapturic acid)
