INCREASED CREATININE LEVELS AMONG HEAT EXPOSED WORKERS IN GROBOGAN TILES INDUSTRY, CENTRAL JAVA, INDONESIA
Heat pressure in the tile production process occurs during the drying and burning stages. This working climate can lead to dehydration and more severe clinical consequences such as kidney problems and elevated creatinine levels in workers. This cross-sectional study involved 41 tile workers in Karangasem Village, Wirosari Grobogan District.
