Some warship compartments are undoubtedly considered severe hot environment due to high-temperature values produced by rotating machinery. Besides, it also depended on the external conditions such as weather and design of the warship, which contributes to high-temperature in specific compartments. Such inconvenient situations which related to space, noise, vibration and poor air quality inside the warship compartment further increase high prevalence risk to the associated technicians. Thus, this study was to examine the awareness state among technicians regarding the heat exposure they faced in machinery room during the daily routine and to propose an action plan to increase awareness state among technicians regarding heat exposure in the workplace. The variables that have been chosen in the study were knowledge awareness, personal influences, environmental influences, interpersonal influences and management influences. The statistical analysis technique was applied in the study by using The Pearson-correlation coefficient. Result shows that the environmental impacts and management authorities have a significant positive relationship with awareness state among technicians.
