Abstract

Background: Coal still ranks the second largest source of total global energy demand, which is complemented
by the high-risk nature of coal mining activity. Therefore, it is important to discuss the health issues of coal
workers. One of the risks associated with coal mining activities is poor indoor air quality (IAQ) due to the
high concentration of airborne pollutants. Methods: This study aims to evaluate the results of air quality
measurements in the PT X office, and the method used was a descriptive approach with quantitative secondary
data. Furthermore, the measured variables are NO2, SO2, CO2, CO, Pb, PM10, temperature, humidity, and
noise. Conclusion: The results showed that there was an IAQ problem, namely noise, temperature, and
humidity which exceed the recommendations. Therefore, the IAQ management implemented by PT X was
still systematically and comprehensively developing.
