The purpose of this study was to determine the factors associated with a hearing disorder in traditional fishermen. The research method used is quantitative descriptive. Statistical test results using the chi-square test showed that the depth of diving has a significant correlation with a hearing disorder with a value of ? = 0.01, while the period of work, duration of work, and frequency of diving do not correlate with the hearing disorder in traditional fishermen in Namrole district, South Buru Regency.
