ABSTRACT

Background: Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) and environmental management system im­proves the ability to identify and remove hazards and decrease health and sa­fety risk at workplace en­vironment. It is increasingly acknowledged that OHS and en­vi­ron­­mental management system sho­uld be performed systematically and conti­nu­ally. This study aimed to describe an OHS ma­na­ge­ment system in Faculty of Public Health, Universitas Indonesia.

Subjects and Method: This was a descriptive qualitative study conducted at Fa­culty of Public Health, Universitas Indoenesia, Depok, West Java. A total of 15 cam­pus students and 2 ma­na­gers of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) were se­lec­t­ed for this study.  The data were collected by in-depth interview, Focus Group Dis­­cu­s­sion (FGD), and observation. The data were analyzed de­s­crip­tively.

Results: OHS knowledge was very varied. Implementing OHS was very important. In student per­cep­­tion facilities that available to support the OHS implementation we­re fire extinguishers, red info on important numbers, and warnings of building con­stru­­c­tion. Several facilities that did not avail­ab­le to support the OHS imple­men­tation we­re me­dicine & first aid kits in the class. The support from the faculty par­ties had been running in the form of signed a dean committee agreement and fo­r­m­ed a team in each building.

Conclusion: Occupational health and safety and environmental management system in Faculty of Pu­blic Health, Universitas Indonesia, have been well implemented. There are some OHS facilities and socialization that need to be improved.
