Furniture industry has potency to produce noise. Noise from the manufacturing process can cause hearing loss disorders for workers. The purpose of this research was to analyze relationship between individual characteristic, individual behaviors and noise intensity with hearing loss disorders on furniture workers. This research used a cross-sectional and cluster random sampling on 455 people which spread across in 82 informal furniture. The results showed that from 72 samples studied, there were 43 workers who have conductive deafness and 18 workers have sensorineural deafness. Data of this research wass analyzed by using Spearman and Cramer coefficient C test. The analysist results appear significant association of hearing loss with age (p = 0.004), duration of exposure (0.027), work period (p = 0.012), ototoxic medication use (p = 0.000), smoking (p = 0.000), and noise intensity (p = 0.004). So it needed prevention, control and monitoring by the government and the owners for the health and safety of workers in the informal workers to prevent occupational diseases arising.
