The paddy mill workers are informal workers that lake of concern by the goverment. This research was intended to analyze relationship of individual characteristics, working climate, and the amount of dust in the air with lung function abnormality on paddy mill workers in District of Tlogosari and Pujer Bondowoso Regency. This research applied analitic-observational method by cross-sectional approach and took location at UD. Sinar Baru in District of Tlogosari and UD. Serampang Jaya in District of Pujer, Bondowoso Regency from May to July 2012. The population of this research were 9 paddy mills and sub-population were 2 paddy mills with samples were 50 persons. Data collection methods were questionnaire, interview, observation, working environment measures and documentation. Data analyses applied by the researcher were spearmans, pearson, lambda, contingency coefficient and logistic regression. Based on statistical test, it was obtained that there was significant correlation between age (p = 0,010), smoking habits (p = 0,011), lenght of work period (p = 0,020), dust concentration (p = 0,000), extensive ventilation (p = 0,001), and air temperature (p = 0,021). The result of multivariate analyses indicated that the amount of dust in the air was the most associated factor with lung function abnormality. It is expected that workers have to use breathing protection continuously and reduce cigarette consumtion especially in work place. Then to paddy mill owner and goverment institutions should be cooperate to increase the occupational health and safety of informal workers.
