Noise and heat have become a problem for a worker in the animal food processing company. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of noise and heat to stress. Noise and heat data were collected as primary data and stress were collected by questionnaire and analyzed by multiple regression. The result showed a relationship between noise, heat, and stress (sig 0,003<0,05). A moderate correlation between noise, heat, and stress was also observed (r=0,561). No differences between the two groups of age, gender and status were found with t-test. Reducing noise and heat by engineering and administrative control were necessary to execute. There is no need for different treatment to reduce stress between a group of gender, age, and status.
