ABSTRACT

Background: The Occupational Health and Safety Act aims to ensure healthy and safe wor­king conditions of workers. Although some organizations have worked hard to safe­­­guard their em­ployees’ health and protect them from work-related hazards, their pro­grammes have not been guided by any specific policy or workplace health promo­tion framework. The purpose of this study was to use the theoretical framework of Van Meter and Van Horn including policy stan­­dards and objectives, resources, imple­men­ting agency characteristics, communication bet­ween organizations, imple­ment­ing dis­posi­­tions and support of socio-economic and political en­vi­ronments as a framework to examine policy analysis of occupational health implementation at R. Syamsudin, SH. hos­pital, Sukabumi, West Java.

Subjects and Method: This was a qualitative study conduc­ted at R. Syamsudin, SH. hos­­pital in Sukabumi, West Java. A sample of 17 health workers was selected for this study. The de­pen­dent variable was the implementation of occupational health. The in­de­­­pen­dent variables were policy standards and objectives, resources, im­plementing agen­cy characteristics, com­mu­nication between organizations, implementing dis­positi­ons and support of socio-economic and political environments. The data were collected by depth-interview, observation and document review.

Results: The implementation of occupational health policy in R. Syamsudin, SH hos­pi­tal was found not optimally implemented.

Conclusion: The implementation of occupational health policy in RSUD R. Syam­sudin, SH. Sukabumi city is not optimally implemented. Theoretical framework of Van Me­ter and Van Horn can be used to analysis the implementation of occupational health.
