Hearing loss is one of the many health problems experienced by workers in high noise exposure areas. The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between noise intensity and hearing loss in PPSU workers in North Jakarta. This type of research is quantitative analytic using cross-sectional design involving 45 PPSU workers in North Jakarta. Hearing loss was identified by audiometric examination with air conditioning (AC), while noise intensity in the worker's area was measured using a sound level meter. The results of this study showed that 60% of respondents experienced hearing loss, and 51.1% of the areas had noise intensity ≥ 75 dB. The results of categorical analysis showed that there is a relationship between noise intensity and hearing loss with prevalence of ratio was 5.2. Logistic regression analysis showed that respondents who work in areas with noise intensity ≥ 75 dB had the opportunity 7 times to experience hearing loss after being controlled by variable smoking behavior, and hobbies towards noise. Exposure to high noise is something that cannot be avoided by PPSU workers, therefore to reduce or prevent the occurrence of hearing loss, the workers should use earplugs while working, and should reduce smoking and listening music with earphones. In addition, the workers should conduct regular audiometric examinations and attend health counseling at the workplace.
