Abstract

Emissions of motor vehicles containing heavy metals, one of which is lead (Pb). Street vendors belong to the community group at a high risk of exposure to motorized vehicle emissions. This study aims to analyze and assess lead levels in the blood of street vendors. The research design used was cross-sectional with a method of collecting data through observation, interviews, and questionnaires. Lead measurement using the Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) method. The sample was determined by a purposive sampling method of 30 street vendors. The results of this study are 18 respondents (60%) with blood lead levels exceeding normal levels namely <10 μg/dL. The average blood lead level of street vendors was 22,03 μg/dL. The highest blood lead levels were 65 μg/dl with the highest daily working time of 16 hours/day. Characteristics of respondents who have an influence on blood lead (Pb) levels are age and daily work time.
