Traffic police officers are a group of workers prone to develop Acute Respiratory Tract Infection (ARTI) due to their risky working environment and non-compliance Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) application. This research aims to explore the relationship among the working environment, PPE application, and the occurrence of ARTI on traffic police officers. This study used a cross-sectional design involving 71 participants. Data were collected by questionnaire as a research instrument. The chi-squared analysis shows that there was a relationship between the working environment and the occurrence of ARTI (p = 0.024), and there is a significant relationship between using PPE and the occurrence of ARTI (p = 0.001). This research is expected to be the base of health promotion programs in workers so nurses can coordinate with the related institution having a health education program related to their health problems that may occur due to their working environment and behavior.
