Abstract

This study aims to calculate the value of RfC from xylen exposure around the car painting area of Surabaya,

Indonesia. This is an observational cross-sectional study with quantitative data analysis methods conducted

manually. The population in this study was groups of car painting workers and groups of car repairer on Jalan

Pengenal Kota Surabaya. The sampling technique was proportionate stratified random sampling to take 51

people. The measurement of xylen concentration around the car painting area was 635.98 mg/m3 (146.47

ppm). This value is above the threshold value according to Minister of Manpower and Transmigration

Regulation Number 13 of 2011 and Minister of Manpower Regulation Number. 5 of 2018 is 434 mg/m3 (100

ppm). RfC of car painting workers with NOAEL 50 mg/kg was 7.76 mg/kg.
