Train drivers and train driver assistants are one type of work exposed high intensity of noise from locomotive. Th is study aims to know the relationship between working periods and Noise Induced Hearing Loss on train drivers and train drivers assistants in PT. Kereta Api Indonesia, Bandung, Indonesia.

Result was analyzed by chi-square and result of p-value is 0.007 (p<0.05). From this study, we conclude that there is relation between working period enhancements with noise induced hearing loss on train drivers and train drivers’ assistants in PT. Kereta Api Indonesia.
