Menakar Urgensi Pengetahuan K3 bagi Calon Teknisi Pertambangan di Kalimantan Selatan
South Kalimantan is one of the provinces in Indonesia with a natural environment that has promising mining potential. Working in a mining environment will make workers face to face with specific work situations and environments that have various potential hazards. A good company usually has a good occupational health and safety (K3) management system. The existence of supervision, work SOPs and habits related to K3 such as safety talk and other supporting matters are generally able to reduce the risk of work accidents and can anticipate potential hazards. However, unforeseen situations and emergencies can occur at any time. Mine workers may find themselves in situations where they cannot connect with anyone or have to make certain decisions and actions when an emergency occurs. This study assesses how important OHS knowledge is for prospective mining technicians in South Kalimantan. This type of research is descriptive qualitative research using data collection techniques in the form of observation, interviews and library studies.
