FIKES UPNVJ - A Public Lecture on Physiotherapy Ergonomics was held with the theme "Safety for Life: Theory and Practice of K3 in the World of Work and Everyday Life" Physiotherapy Study Program, Faculty of Health Sciences, UPN Veteran Jakarta on Monday 25 January 2021. This activity was held together with Physiotherapy students from undergraduate and diploma programs with lecturers teaching the Ergonomics Physiotherapy course, namely Mr. Heri Wibisono, AMd.FT, S.Pd, M.Sc, Mrs. Suci Wahyu Ismiyasa, S.Ft, M.Erg, and Mrs. Rena Mailani, S.Ft, M. Biomed. This activity was attended by 61 Physiotherapy students and Physiotherapy Lecturers at UPN Veteran Jakarta.


This event was opened with remarks by the Head of the Diploma Three Physiotherapy Study Program, namely Mr. Agustiyawan, SST.Ft, Ftr, M.Fis, then continued with a group photo session and reading of the resource person's CV by the presenter. The presentation of the material was delivered by an expert in the field, namely K3, by Mrs. Indah Kusumaningrum, A.Md, S.Psi, ERMCP from Quality Assurance and HSE Assistant Manager, PT Pembangunan Pelabuhan Indonesia.


He said that K3 is important because there are potential dangers and are close to daily life, for example LPG gas leaks, the use of motorbikes on roads where the number of passengers exceeds the limit, and entangled cables. There are occupational diseases caused by work and the work environment, such as exposure to noise, high temperatures, lighting, or chemicals and microbiology. However, it can be denied that using poor posture when doing work can potentially cause work-related illnesses, such as back and neck pain.

Potential dangers can occur anywhere and at any time, including during physiotherapy services at clinics or hospitals or during lessons in the physiotherapy laboratory. Examples such as the use of modalities that are not in accordance with the regulations, negligence in the dose given without considering contraindications, and inappropriate body position in providing services to patients are also potential K3 dangers. Therefore, public lectures on Physiotherapy ergonomics need to be held to provide an overview of the potential dangers that are very close to everyday life and physiotherapy services as well as forms of prevention that can minimize the occurrence of work accidents and work-related diseases.
