Abstract

Informal sectors, especially Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) plays a significant role in the national economy's development and employment but lack of Health and Safety concerns regarding their works. This study aims to increase the informal sector's awareness towards occupational health and safety aspects by conducting occupational health and safety (OHS) risk mapping through an integrated platform in Sukahati Village, Citeureup, West Java. One of this study's outcomes is to create an integrated online database platform that contains occupational health and safety data from the sampled MSMEs called SiUMKM. This study was conducted with samples of MSMEs across Sukahati Village using questionnaire-based interviews. The highest proportion of work accidents within the population includes punctures, cuts, and scratches. In contrast, the highest occurring health issues in MSMEs in Sukahati are waist pain, back pain, and muscle stiffness. Many of the existing health issues cause are manual handling tasks and inadequate workstation arrangements (up to 91% contribution). In conclusion, the OHS problems surrounding MSMEs mainly resulted from the low comprehension of OHS in the workplace. Therefore, an integrated platform like SiUMKM can be a solution for comprehensive information regarding the health and safety aspects of MSMEs work environment.
