Abstract
Noise is the danger factor that influences all environment, both industrial environment and environment in general. The effect of noise can be a disturbance sense of hearing form of deafness. For examples is the lowering percentage of hearing level and for another impact is on hypertension. This study aimed on determining the effect of age and the tenure (work period) on hearing loss and hypertension of the labourer exposed to an industrial noise. This study used observational and analytical method with cross sectional approach. The populations were the labourer exposed to the textile industrial noise in Subosukawonosraten regionof Central Java. The samples were taken through quota sampling technique from 210 people. The results have shown that the labourer exposed to the noise by intensity of 80-99 dB have been found that: 1) there is an effect of age and tenure (work period) on the percentage of hearing loss, 2) there is an influence of age and tenure (work period) towards the hypertension of the labourer. It is concluded that the noise in the intensity of 80-99 dB affects the hearing loss and hypertension of labourer.
