AN ANALYSIS OF THE FACTOR AFFECTING SUBSTANDARD PRACTICE OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) USAGE IN CEMENT INDUSTRY MAINTENANCE WORKERS
Background: Repair and maintenance work of machine has high risk and hazard that could potentially lead to work accident. The use of PPE is the final hazard control effort that serves to reduce the severity of work accident5. This study analyzed the effect of age, self-efficacy, PPE training, and PPE availability on substandard practice of PPE usage in maintenance workers.
Materials and Methods: This study was an observational study with cross-sectional design. Subject of the study amounted to 54 maintenance workers. The independent variables were consisted of age, self-efficacy, PPE training, and PPE availability. The dependent variable was substandard practice of PPE usage. Data collection techniques used questionnaire to find out age, self-efficacy, PPE training, PPE availability, and observation to know substandard practice of PPE usage.
Result: The p value of age = 0.021, the p value of self-efficacy = 0.089, the value of PPE training = 0.000, and the p value of PPE availability = 0.345. Based on multiple logistic regression test, if (p < 0.05) hence it has a significant influence to substandard practice of PPE usage.
Conclusion: self-efficacy and PPE availability have no effect on substandard practice of PPE usage. Age and PPE training significantly affect the substandard practice of PPE usage in maintenance workers.Keywords: age, self-efficacy, PPE training, substandard practice
