(3/9) Semarang – In line with Program of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are to ensure a healthy life, preventive and promotive approaches are needed as well as empowering families and communities in the health sector. One form of community empowerment in the health sector is to develop Community Based Health Efforts (UKBM), one of which is Posyandu.
At Faculty of Engineering currently there is no forum for managing employee health problems. Posyandu (Health Centre) for employees are felt as a crucial need to maintain the health status of employees at Faculty. Based on these needs, it is necessary to carry out community service activities (PkM) carried out by a Lecturer Team of 4 people from the Undip Faculty of Medicine to facilitate the establishment of this Employee Health Centre (Posyandu).
The series of activities for the establishment of Posyandu include: providing nutrition and health materials for a month, the practice of using anthropometric tools, checking blood sugar, cholesterol and uric acid levels with portable tools, testing skills for calculating food intake and peer group education skills. In implementing Posyandu, health workers and Posyandu cadres are needed. Posyandu cadres come from the faculty community of employees who come from elements of lecturers and staff. And a number of 50 prospective cadres have joined.
The first meeting cadre training activity was held on Friday, September 3, 2021 which was held through a zoom meeting, attended by participants from representatives of each department of Faculty of Engineering. The material presented was the provision of background material for the formation of the Posyandu and balanced nutrition education in supporting work productivity.
By providing education about balanced nutrition, it is expected to increase work productivity, work absenteeism, work performance and work ability for Faculty employees. After the delivery of the material there is also a question and answer based on the material that has been delivered. The event was closed with a discussion between the community service team and the partner team, represented by the Deputy Dean of Faculty of Engineering, Dr. Abdul Syakur, ST, MT. who conveyed good feedback and hopes with the establishment of the Posyandu.
(24/8) Semarang – In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Faculty of Engineering continues to carry out capacity building for lecturers and staff to improve their ability and work capacity in order to provide the best service for students and the college environment.
Twenty lecturers and staff who were sent consisted of 7 Heads of Departments, 1 Head of Study Programs, 9 Heads of Department K3 Units, and 3 Laboratory Assistants. Lecturers and staff who were sent, 17 of whom were the Committee for the Development of Occupational Safety and Health (P2K3) at Faculty of Engineering. They will take part in General K3 training and certification activities for 2 weeks, started on August 23rd until 4th September 2021. The organizer of this General OSH training and certification activity is PT. Wealthindo Putrapramesti Perkasa.
Dean of Faculty of Engineering, Prof. M Agung Wibowo, said that goal of this program in order to increase capacity of lecturers and staff in the field of K3 was a policy of Engineering Fculty which has been started in 2019. K3 policies within the Faculty of Engineering include allocating a budget to send students, lecturers and staff to attend K3 training and certification.
We hoped the result of this certification would have a great impact on academics, especially students, when they graduate and work in a company, they no longer stutter about the implementation of K3, and are even expected to become leaders and innovators in the company in implementing the implementation of K3. General K3 and specific K3 such as K3 Electrical, K3 Electrical machines, K3 Chemistry, K3 construction work were delivered through K3 Talk activities organized by P2K3 Faculty of Engineering.
Faculty of Engineering has prepared documents related to the implementation of K3 at the Faculty of Engineering in 2020 and at the end of the year an External Audit is carried out. Finally, in early 2021 the Faculty of Engineering obtained an ISO 45001:2018 certificate which shows that the Faculty of Engineering has implemented K3 within the Faculty of Engineering. This achievement was also in line with the mandate of the Undip Chancellor, Prof. Yos Johan Utama, which was conveyed during the Morning Apple activity, Monday, August 23, 2021.
In his remarks, Prof. Yos emphasized that lecturers and staff must work professionally so that accidents do not occur on the job. The potential for disasters was all around us, therefore we need to be vigilant by seriously identifying the potential disasters, whether they are fires, floods, landslides and so on.
Furthermore, when a disaster occurred, we knew an actions to handle it, the equipment has been prepared, officers were prepared. If the equipment already exists, it is necessary to periodically check the equipment, so if it is needed, it can immediately be operated properly. For handling all of this, the rector said that in Undip SOTK which was just approved in 2021, there was an Office that was handled by Occupational Safety, Health and the Environment. The Chancellor advised, Undip’s environmental management must be prioritized, moreover Undip is ranked 2nd in the Green metric. It was so important to keep our reputation in this area.
Based on the Rector’s mandate, Abdul Syakur as Vice Dean of Resources at Faculty of Engineering will continue to carry out the programs that have been prepared in implementing K3 in Undip, both short-term, medium-term and long-term programs. Especially at Faculty of Engineering by empowering the Faculty P2K3 Team, Departmental K3 Unit and collaborating with the newly inaugurated Head of the Undip K3L Office, to socialize the importance of implementing K3L and carrying out training and disaster simulations in the context of emergency response in the college environment.

(18/8) Semarang – A comfortable, safe, and healthy residence is everyone’s dream. However, the population is growing so rapidly, while the land cannot expand itself. Because it needs an alternative to create a comfortable dwelling for humans.
Universitas Diponegoro as one of the Public Universities has a responsibility to continue developing human resources, in order to help the development of Indonesia. At the moment, the Faculty of Engineering, Urban and Regional Planning Study Program (URP) Undip participated in a competition to organize slums in Jakarta, which was held by IAP (Indonesian Planning Experts Association) in the Jakarta area.
Undip sent three teams to compete with others 60 teams, consisting of 480 participants from various public and private universities. Two Undip teams managed to enter the grand final, namely M-03 as the 1st winner and M-25 as the 1st encouragement winner. Other universities that successfully participated in the grand final were ITB (Bandung Institute of Technology) which brought two awards (2nd winner and 2nd encouragement winner), and Universitas Indonesia as 3rd winner.
Undip IKA team, Novia Sari Ristianti, S.T., M.T., Undip URP Student Affairs section as well as M-03 team coach, explained that this activity was an output form of a competition to design or organize slum areas in Jakarta.
“The concept in this activity is how to make this urban village a healthier and more resilient village, especially during the pandemic. As we know, almost all of the villages in Jakarta are close to each other, therefore these two problems we want to solve, namely making a healthy village and how to create green, open space to improve health levels,” she explained.
Novia said that the location has been determined by the IAP in collaboration with the DKI Provincial Government and of course Governor Anies Baswedan. She chose Manggarai area because it was strategic.
“We chose this area because it is a strategic area. This area is known as a busy area, but also known as a slum area and has a high crime rate. In our opinion, selection of this area is appropriate because it is in accordance with the initial concept, namely changing slum areas and making healthy areas, “said this Undip PWK Lecturer.
IKA Undip also managed to interview Muhammad Farhan Attarikshah, a member of the M-03 team. The team’s work is called “Kampung Sejali”, Healthy Village, Green Mandiri which is in accordance with the theme of SDGs sustainability and certainly does not cost a lot.
Farhan explained that he carried the Sponge City theme on the concept of the Manggarai image. Sponge City is a new concept in URP field and has only been carried out by several countries, one of which is in China, namely in Wuhan and Chongkin.
“This concept is still new in the URP field and it is still not widely used. We chose Sponge City as we know that Jakarta is very often flooded and initially China has been successfully implemented and successful, so we intend to use this concept as our innovation in making a city map, “explained Farhan.
This concept is different from other forms of relocation, because he and his group found that Manggarai has a high social concept. Therefore, they apply a modular model that maintains the village, so that residents can continue to interact.
Farhan also explained that modular concept which they created was devoted to one area, so the friendliness of the residents is maintained. In addition, each block is equipped with flexible open space facilities. Farhan hopes that the concept can be applied in the real life. (Mardian)
