Abstract

Introduction: Fit-to-work assessment is one of the health examination efforts to assess the physical function and occupational health of workers before starting work. This fit-to-work assessment is very important during the current pandemic because the workplace is a place that is at risk of transmitting the COVID-19 virus, especially a workplace that continues to operate during the pandemic. Thus, this study aims to analyze the influence of fit-to-work assessment on the work performance of Heavy Equipment Operators at a port service terminal in Indonesia during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The population in this study is heavy equipment operators in one of the sub-holding of PT. Pelindo Terminal Petikemas Surabaya- Indonesia with a sample of 54 operators who can represent each work shift. Each participant was given a questionnaire and needed to fulfill it. The data will be analyzed using SPSS 25. The data analyzed was descriptive only.

Shift two from 3.30 pm until 11.40. The length of work was also more than five years or greater than others (59.25%), with the work performance from 54 respondents, we found that they had a high work performance (72%), and all of the respondents were mostly in a reasonable condition (94.04%).

Conclusion:  Fit-to-work assessment is carried out before work to determine whether the worker is fit or unfit to work according to the level of health required.
