Keywords:nutritional status, dust, acute respiratory infections
Acute Respiratory Infections (ARI) are a health problem that has not been handled properly in Indonesia,
every year the incidence of acute respiratory infections is still high, which can be fatal, namely death. Several
factors cause acute respiratory infections such as nutritional status, dust exposure, length of exposure to
dust, and years of service for workers in industries who have a high risk of acute respiratory tract infection
problems. This study aims to determine the risk factors for acute respiratory infections in the industry. This
study uses a cross-sectional approach with a sample of 89 respondents, where the results will be analyzed
using the chi-square test. The result of this study is that there is a relationship between nutritional status,
dusty workspace, length of exposure to dust, and length of work with the incidence of acute respiratory
infections in industrial workers. Based on the results of this study, it is hoped that workers and the industry
will pay attention to the use of PPE to minimize dust exposure to workers in the industry.
