Abstract

The Correlation Between Electric and Magnetic Radiation With The Occurence of Hypertension And Distress in Occupational Field.The Aim of this study was to know between correlation of electric and magnetic radiation with the occurence of hypertension. The study conducted in the seven industries in industrial estate pulogadung (JIEP) Jakarta in 2007. The study desain was cross-sectional. The measurement of the electric and magnetic field near of the equipment were use the strength meter. The hypertension measure of the Hg-tension meter and the distress was use general health quesionaire (GHQ). The result show that 950 participants from seven industries which are followed the study, clasified by activities of industries that 26.2% steel, 22.5% chemical and drug, 21.7% spare part, 13.9% garmen, 7.9% food; 5.7% printing and 2.1% construction. The result of measurement of electric field show 1.57 KV/m higher in the chemical and drug industries and 0.032 KV/m lower in the printing industries. The standard of electric field in the occupational health is 10 KV/m for along term work activities. The magnetic field show the construction industries is higer 16.8 µT and the printing industries lower 1.04 µT. However the standard of the magnetic field the in occupational health for along term work activities is 500 µT. The result of the tension show the proporsion of hypertension was 8.7%, with clasification 20.5% of hypersistolic and 11.1% hyperdiastolic. Analysis statistic the correlation kind of industries and the hypertention is significant diffrenly (P<0.05). The occurence of distress show the construction industries is 50.0%. followed by garmen 46,2% and steel 44.6%. Analysis statistic correlation kind of the industries and the distress is not significant diffrenly (P>0.05).Keywords: Occupational health, electric and magnetic field, hypertension, distress
