Abstract

Background: Occupational Health Risk Assessment (OHRA) is an instrument to determine Occupational Health Riks by conducting hazard identification, exposure assessment, risk assessment, risk management and documentation. PT GMF AEROASIA has a variety of hazards as well as having a high enough exposure so that the health risk assessment needs to be done. The purpose of this study was to determine the description of work activities, identify potential hazards, exposure level, and to determine the health risks that may arise, and to determine the control priority based on the Risk Manageability Matrix. Method:  This  study  used  descriptive  survey  approach  utilizing  Walk  Through  Survey, sampling  and  measurement  of  exposures  to  occupational  health  hazards  in  the  form  of physicasl, chemicals, biologicals, ergonomics and psychosocial. Results were analyzed and reported  using  matrices  of  Hazard  Rating,  Exposure  Rating,  and  Risk  Rating.  Risk Manageability Matrix was then constructed to determine the management priority of the high and medium rating hazards. Result: This study found occupational health hazards in the high risk category were food sanitation and ergonomic. On the medium risk category were Noise, vibration and psychosocial while exposure to chemical hazards such as Methyl Ethyl Ketone and Ethyl benzene were low category. Conclusion: It was concluded that high risk category of occupational health hazards at PT GMF AEROASIA were Food Sanitation and Ergonomic, while on the medium scale were noise, vibration and psychosocial. It was therefore recommended that PT. GMF AEROASIA address these identified occupational health risks.
