Introduction: A portable fire extinguisher is one of the effective and active fire protection tool equipment used to extinguish fires at the beginning of a fire. The occurrence of a fire does not immediately become a big fire but it is starts from a small fire. This small fire is perfectly extinguished by using a portable fire extinguisher. Installation and maintenance of a portable fire extinguisher is one of the systems for fire prevention. However, it is important to know that a good and effective implementation must be balanced with proper installation and maintenance in accordance with existing regulations so that later it can function properly. This study aims to evaluate the application of the installation and maintenance of portable fire extinguishers at PT Y Indonesia. Methods: This research used descriptive research method with cross sectional approach. The data were obtained by observation using observation sheets and measurements directly in the field using a meter. Results: PT Y Indonesia has a policy regarding the installation and maintenance of APAR but its application has not fully met the requirements except for the color, pressure and distance between APAR. Conclusion: The implementation of APAR installation at PT Y Indonesia has not been in accordance with the relevant regulations except for APAR color, and the distance between APAR and implementation of maintenance is only done once a month without conducting detailed inspection with a period of 6 months and 12 months.Keywords: installation, maintenance, portable fire extinguisher

The high number of customer visits risks the workforce from work fatigue. The demand for production in order to fulfill the consumer needs leads to an excessive workload which is handed to the workers in the Kaliotik Lamongan restaurant. Moreover, high mobility in the food production process potentially creates non-ergonomic work attitudes. Therefore, all of those factors can lead the workers experiencing work fatigue. The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between workload and work attitude with work fatigue at Kaliotik Lamongan Resto workers. Methods: This study was observational descriptive which was done by using cross-sectional. The population in this study was all workers at the Kaliotik Lamongan Resto, which consisted of 13 people who worked in the kitchen and cashier kitchen section. The sampling technique used was the total population technique. Data collection includes physical workload measurements, assessment of work attitude with The Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) method and work fatigue measurements using a reaction timer. The study was analyzed using the Spearman correlation test. Results: Showed that the workload with work fatigue had a relationship with the strength of the moderate relationship (r = 0.415) and work attitudes with work fatigue showed a low strong relationship (r = 0.389). Conclusion: Excessive workload is the main factor which causes work fatigue in workers, in contrary, work attitude is not a factor of work fatigue.Keywords: physical workload, work attitude, work fatigue
