Respiratory disorders are health problems that are often suffered by workers who are in the work environment or types of work that are at risk of being exposed to high levels of dust. This study aimed to determine the risk factors for respiratory disorders symptomps on workers of Sikatak bridge construction project workers. This research was an observational analytic study using a cross sectional approach in October to December 2019. Samples in this study were taken from all population as many as 50 people with a total sampling technique, total sampling is a sampling technique where the number of samples is equal to the population. Statistical test results found that there was a significant association between duration of exposure (p = 0.042; PR = 1.565; 95% CI = 1,040-2,354) to the incidence of symptomps of respiratory disorders on workers of Sikatak bridge construction project. Based on this study it can be concluded that symptomps of respiratory disorders have a proportion of respiratory disorders symptoms 1.565 times greater when working more than 8 hours per day. To avoid the risk of respiratory disorders, it can be done by regulating lifestyle, reducing smoking and using personal protective equipment.
