Abstract

When a community is unprepared for industrial disaster, the anticipated results are many fatalities and economic loss. Preparedness indicators can be seen from knowledge, attitudes, and experience regarding disaster risk. The purpose of this research was to explain the relationship between knowledge, attitude, and experience of teenagers about industrial disaster mitigation and preparedness . The design of the research was descriptive correlation with a cross-sectional approach. The sample of the research was 109 teenagers in the age range 15-18 years who lived in high risk of industrial disaster. This research were undertaken by using simple random sampling by each cluster. The dependent variable were knowledge, attitude, and experience about industrial disaster mitigation, and the dependent variable was preparedness. Data was collected by using questionnaires and analyzed using Spearman‟s rho test and a chi square test with significant level α<0.05. The results show that knowledge about industrial disaster mitigation does not have significant correlation with preparedness (p = 0.323), attitude about industrial disaster mitigation has significant correlation with preparedness (p = 0.037), and experience about industrial disaster mitigation has significant correlation with preparedness (p = 0.004). It can be concluded that knowledge on mitigation has no effect on preparedness, whereas attitude and practice have an effect on preparedness. People practicing preparadness was not based on knowledge, but on training and experience.
