Noise, Cortisol Level, Textile.


Noise is a hazard that can not be avoided in the textile company. Some research show that noise can cause health problems, one of them is stress. Several research have shown that cortisol can be used as one of the parameters to help diagnose stress. This research was conducted at PT. Iskandar Indah Textile, Surakarta. The study was designed as an observational study and conducted by cross sectional method. Samples were obtained by using the technique of sampling means that 15 weaving. The variable in this study is cortisol in the blood which was measured by ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay). This reaserch shows that the intensity of the noise from the work environment weaving section 94.6 dBA, 97.2 dBA, 97.7 dBA, 98.2 dBA higher than the threshold value (TLV). Based on paired-sample T test analysis showed that the there is difference cortisol level between before and after exposed noise. The conclusion is noise affect of cortisol levels in the blood.
