Correlation between Workloads and Working Fatigue Experienced by Production Division Workers at CV X Garment in Sukoharjo, Indonesia
The study aims to describe the workloads received by the production division workers, in addition to discover the correlation between the workloads and working fatigue that the workers experienced. It deployed an analytical observation method through a cross-sectional approach that was conducted at CV X Garment Sukoharjo in October 2018. The population consisted of 122 sewing workers, from which 36 workers were involved as the research sample through a purposive sampling technique. The study highlighted the workloads as the independent variable and fatigue as the dependent variable. It used Spearman-Rank statistical analysis. The findings marked the percentages of workload levels, including light workloads (13.9%), moderate workloads (25.0%), heavy workloads (47.2%), highly heavy workloads (11.1%), and extremely heavy workloads (2.8%). The moderate working fatigue category was 9 (52.9%) with p value 0.019 (α < 0.05) and correlation value r = 0.489. To conclude, the number of workloads highly relates to the working fatigue, thus, as an attempt to suppress the excessive working fatigue, the company is suggested to organize an administrative control, for instance, through the regulation of working hour, recess, and additional meal provision (extra fooding) for the workers.
