Abstract

Each workplace must have its own source of danger which can cause health problems or occupational
diseases due to the exception of informal sector workers such as brick workers. Health problems that can
be experienced are dehydration caused by exposure to hot working climate. Incidence of dehydration can
cause workers to get tired quickly and decrease productivity. The purpose of this study was to analyze the
correlation between hot working climate with dehydration on bricks workers in one of Mojosulur’s brick
home industries. Methodes of his research is an analytic observational study, with cross sectional design.
The subjects of this study were all brick workers in one of the brick home industries in Mojosulur by 30
respondents. The results of the study showed that most brick workers were dehydrated, varying in level,
both moderate and severe dehydration. The results of statistical analysis show that the correlation coefficient
(r = 0.638) which can be interpreted as a work climate factor has a strong correlation with the incidence
of dehydration Conclusion of this research on work climate and dehydration of brick workers in one of
Mojosulur’s brick home industries have a very strong correlation.
