IMPROVEMENT OF CONDITIONS AND WORKING ENVIRONMENT THROUGH ERGONOMICS INTERVENTION IMPROVED PERFORMANCE AND PRODUCTS QUALITY OF DODOL WORKERS AT PENGLATAN VILLAGE BULELENG RESIDENCY

Abstract

The success of production is largely determined by the conditions and working environment that will affect the comfort, safety and health of workers. Conditions and working environment did not ergonomic ally designed causing dodol workers in the Penglatan village  Buleleng cannot work optimally. Thus, there should be conducted an ergonomic intervention on conditions and working environment of dodol worker by designing dodol mixer, organizational and working environment with  ergonomics interventions through the application of appropiate technology and SHIP concepts approaches. This study was an experimental study with Randomized Pretest and Posttest Control Group Design. This design was a parallel design with number of sample 34 people who were divided into 2 groups they are control and experiment group. Control group that works with the original conditions and working environment totaling 17 peoples and 17 others as the treatment group that works with conditions and working environment that has been improved base on ergonomics. Data were analyzed with a significance level of 5%. The research result showed that there was a decrease in work load between the control and the experiment group 17,11%, decrease in CVL 42,14%, ECPM value was higher than that of ECPT, decrease in musculoskeletal 37,35%, and the tiredness level was34,11%. Work productivity increased from physiological aspect 67,11%, and from economic aspect 179,73%. Based on investment evaluation, NVP value in 5 years was Rp.54.414.450,-, PBP values was 0,26 years less than 5 years and RoI value 19,6% higher than bank interest rate 14%. Laboratory test result showed that there was improvement of dodol quality based on SNI requirement. It was concluded that the improvement of conditions and working environment with ergonomics interventions through the application of TTG and approach of SHIP can improve performance by decreased workload categories, decreased musculoskeletal complaints, decreased fatigue and increase the workers income levels and improve the dodol quality.
