|dc.description.abstract||Hypertension is a chronic disease with its prevalence increasing from 2013 to 2018 among population in Indonesia. In
2013 the prevalence of hypertension was 25.8%, and in 2018 it increased to 34.1 %. Therefore, to control hypertension, it is
necessary to involve all related parties, doctors and health professionals from various fields of hypertension specialization,
government, the private sector, and the public.
Business is a private party that has the authority to participate in the prevention of hypertension in Indonesia. Coal
mining sector traditionally creates a lot of workplaces in the country. This study aimed to look at the influence exerted by
hypertension in parents’ case history on risks of incidence with hypertension among coal mining workers.
This study is a cross-sectional one with two variables, namely hypertension in parents’ case histories and hypertension
among coal mining workers performed on a sampling including 360 coal mining workers. The results showed that if a father
had hypertension in his case history the risk of incidence with hypertension among coal mining workers was 3.143 times
higher because OR = 3.143; 95 % CI (1.568 < OR < 6.229), while if a mother had hypertension in her case history the risk
of incidence with hypertension among coal mining workers was 6.519 times higher because OR = 6.519; 95 % CI
(3,267 < OR < 13,008) and if both parents have hypertension in their case history, the risk of incidence with hypertension
among coal mine workers was 6.061 times higher because OR = 6.061; 95% CI (2,910 <OR <12,625). The obtained results are
enough to prove that hereditary or genetic factors play their role in elevated risks of hypertension in coal mining worker||en_US
