Pembaca yang budiman.
Dear reader,
Setelah cukup lama redaksi membahas dan merancangnya, akhirnya
edisi perdana Halo Vale hadir di hadapan Anda. Tak syak lagi,
perubahan nama majalah ini sejalan dengan perubahan nama PT
International Nickel Indonesia Tbk menjadi PT Vale Indonesia Tbk.
Nama Halo Vale, juga rubrik-rubrik baru dalam edisi-edisi mendatang,
merupakan pilihan pembaca. Pada 19-29 Februari silam, kami
melakukan survei secara sampling kepada 128 responden dari seluruh
departemen.
After long discussions and extensive planning, we are finally able
to present to you the inaugural issue of Halo Vale. The change of
this magazine’s title has occurred alongside the renaming of PT
International Nickel Indonesia Tbk as PT Vale Indonesia Tbk.
The title, Halo Vale, and new columns appearing in the magazine’s
upcoming editions have been chosen by readers in a survey we
conducted between 19 and 29 February of a sample of 128 respondents
from all departments.
Kepada mereka, kami memberikan enam alternatif nama baru
majalah perusahaan hasil diskusi redaksi: Halo Vale, Vale Magz, Go Vale,
Vale Kita, Vale Mondial, Komunika. Hasilnya, dari 89 responden yang
mengembalikan kuesioner, sebanyak 31,5% responden memilih Halo
Vale, disusul Vale Magz 23,6%, Go Vale 19,1%, Vale Kita 13,5%, Vale
Mondial 3,3%, Komunika 2,3%, dan tidak memilih 6,7%.
In the survey, we asked respondents to choose a title from the six that
the editorial team came up with: Halo Vale, Vale Magz, Go Vale, Vale
Kita, Vale Mondial and Komunika. From the 89 respondents who
returned the questionnaire, 31.5% voted for Halo Vale, 23.6% for Vale
Magz, 19.1% for Go Vale, 13.5% for Vale Kita, 3.3% for Vale Mondial,
2.3% for Komunika, and 6.7% had no preference.
Yang juga membuat kami merasa bangga—namun sekaligus
terpacu untuk bekerja lebih baik—sebanyak 49% atau 44 responden
menyatakan bahwa informasi majalah Inkomunikasi selama ini
telah memenuhi kebutuhan mereka. Sementara itu, sebanyak 29%
menyatakan biasa saja, 12% menyatakan belum memenuhi kebutuhan
mereka, 5% menyatakan sangat memenuhi kebutuhan mereka, dan
5% menyatakan tidak memenuhi kebutuhan informasi mereka.
What has also made us proud – and at the same time encouraged us to
work harder – is that 49%, or 44 respondents, said the information they
received through Inkomunikasi magazine sufficiently met their demand.
Others (29%) were neutral about it; 12% said the magazine did not meet
their demand; 5% strongly believed the magazine met their demand;
and 5% strongly believed it did not meet their demand.
Pembaca, dengan nama baru pilihan pembaca ini, semoga Halo Vale
benar-benar bisa menjadi media komunikasi bersama: dari karyawan
untuk karyawan. Sebuah media di mana gagasan, kebersamaan,
kemajuan, dan harapan kita semua bisa diberitakan.
Selamat membaca.
We hope that Halo Vale, a magazine whose title was selected by popular
vote, will become a media allowing communication amongst everyone:
from employees to employees; a media where ideas, camaraderie,
progress and hope can be retold and shared.
Enjoy.
Regards,
The Editor
Salam.

PERLU MENGANGKAT CERITA TENTANG KARYAWAN
Saya salah satu pembaca setia majalah ini, menurut saya isinya cukup
bagus dan memenuhi kebutuhan informasi saya sebagai karyawan PT
Vale. Namun saya saran agar ke depan isi majalah lebih menyentuh
aktivitas karyawan dari semua level dan departemen.
Edi Tang kelayuk [ Mine Reh ab i li t at i on D ep ar t m en t ]
Memang salah satu semangat Halo Vale adalah lebih mendekatkan diri dengan
setiap individu karyawan. Masukan Anda sangat selaras dengan semangat kami.
Terima kasih.
NEED FOR MORE STORIES FROM EMPLOYEES
I am a loyal reader of this magazine. I think its content is sufficiently
good, and the information it provides sufficiently meets my needs
as an employee of PT Vale. However, I would like to suggest the
magazine feature activities that involve employees from all levels and
departments.
Edi Ta n gke l ay u k [M i n e Re h a bi l i t at i o n D e pa r t m e n t ]
Indeed, the spirit of Halo Vale is to become closer to every individual employee. Your
suggestion exactly matches our spirit. Thank you.
SELAMAT ATAS WAJAH BARU MAJALAH INTERNAL
Kepada redaksi, saya ucapkan selamat atas perubahan nama dan
konten majalah internal. Semoga Halo Vale dapat mengulas beritaberita tentang karyawan, selain aktivitas perusahaan lebih kaya dari
sebelumnya. Selain itu, harapan saya majalah bisa terbit sering karena
selama ini frekuensinya terlalu lama sampai ke pembaca. Usulan saya
kalau sebulan sekali terbitnya.
CONGRATULATIONS ON INTERNAL MAGAZINE’S NEW LOOK
Congratulations to the editors on the name change and content
of this internal magazine. Hopefully Halo Vale will cover news on
employees and contain more features on company activities. Also, I
hope the magazine can be published more frequently because at the
current rate, it takes too long to reach readers. I suggest the magazine
be published monthly.
Am a r M a’ruf [Mine O p er at i on D ep ar tem en t ]
Usulan Anda seputar ulasan dan frekuensi terbit Halo Vale akan menjadi bahan
diskusi redaksi. Terima kasih telah menjadi pembaca setia Inkomunikasi selama ini
dan kami harap Anda lebih bersemangat membaca Halo Vale.
A m a r M a’r u f [M i n e O pe r at i o n D e pa r t m e n t ]
Your feedback on the coverage and frequency of Halo Vale’s publication will be
discussed by the editors. Thank you for having been a loyal reader of Inkomunikasi;
we hope you will enjoy reading Halo Vale with the same enthusiasm.
SENANG DENGAN RUBRIK “PROFIL”
Dengan perubahan Inkomunikasi menjadi Halo Vale, semoga redaksi
dapat memberi warna baru isi dan penyajian beritanya. Hadirnya
rubrik baru “Profil” merupakan salah satu keputusan bagus yang dilakukan redaksi, sebab rubrik ini dapat mengangkat cerita-cerita unik
dan menarik dari profesi para karyawan PT Vale.
ENJOYING THE “PROFILE” COLUMN
The name change from Inkomunikasi to Halo Vale will hopefully encourage editors to give new color to the magazine’s content and news
presentation. The decision to create the ”Profile” column is a good one
as it presents unique and interesting stories of PT Vale employees in
their professional capacities.
Nurhidayah [ M aintenan ce an d U t i li t i es D ep ar t m en t ]
Terima kasih atas dukungan Anda terhadap rubrikasi Halo Vale. Semoga kami
senantiasa memberikan yang terbaik bagi pembaca. Salam hangat.
N u r h i daya h [M a i n te n a n c e a n d U t i l i t i e s D e pa r t m e n t ]
Thank you for supporting the columns at Halo Vale. We hope to continue giving our
readers the best we have to offer. Warm regards.
SEMOGA LEBIH BAGUS DAN DINAMIS
Pertama-tama, saya ucapkan selamat atas perubahan nama baru majalah ini menjadi Halo Vale. Semoga tampilan dan isinya lebih bagus
dan dinamis. Saya juga mengapresiasi redaksi yang merilis rubrik baru
“Surat Pembaca”. Hal ini tentu bisa menjadi media interaksi antara
pembaca yang notabene karyawan dan redaksi atau manajemen.
IMPROVE AND MORE DYNAMIC
First of all, I would like to congratulate the renaming of this magazine
to Halo Vale. I hope the presentation and content of this magazine
will continue to improve and become more dynamic. I also appreciate
the new ”Readers’ Letters” column. This will surely provide a space for
readers – employees, editors and management staff – to interact.
Erl i n Harr y [ Mine Rehab i li t at i on D ep ar t m en t ]
Terima kasih telah berpartisipasi di rubrik Surat Pembaca kami yang pertama. Kami
berharap dapat menjawab kebutuhan Anda terhadap informasi dan selalu menanti
masukan dari Anda.
E r l i n H a r r y [M i n e Re h a bi l i t at i o n D e pa r t m e n t ]
Thank you for participating in our inaugural Readers’ Letters column. We hope we
have sufficiently met your need for information and we continue to look forward to
hearing from you.
DAPAT DIAKSES MELALUI INTERNET
Informasi yang disajikan majalah internal ini sudah cukup baik. Tapi
saya dan mungkin rekan saya di departemen kami sering kesulitan
mendapatkan majalah setiap kali terbit. Saya tidak tahu mengapa hal
itu bisa terjadi. Sebagai solusinya, saya menyarankan agar Halo Vale
dapat diakses melalui internet sehingga bila pembaca tidak mendapatkan versi cetak dapat menikmatinya melalui kanal dunia maya.
ACCESSIBLE BY INTERNET
The information provided by this internal magazine is quite good.
However, I – and perhaps other colleagues in my department – often
have difficulty obtaining the magazine; I am unsure why. As a solution,
I suggest Halo Vale be made accessible via the Internet so readers who
cannot get hold of a printed version can read it digitally.
Te guh Ariyanto [ Fire Em erg en c y S er v i ce D ep ar t m en t ]
Informasi seputar distribusi Halo Vale dapat Anda peroleh di External Relations
Department (ext. 3600). Saran Anda agar pembaca bisa mengakses Halo Vale
melalui internet sangat menarik dan akan menjadi pertimbangan redaksi. Terima
kasih telah menulis untuk kami.
Te gu h A r i ya n to [Fi re E m e rge n c y S e r vi c e D e pa r t m e n t ]
Enquiries regarding the distribution of Halo Vale can be made to the External
Relations Department (ext. 3600). Your proposal to have readers access Halo Vale
through the Internet is very interesting and will be considered by the editors. Thank
you for writing to us.
Kirimkan kritik, saran, dan tanggapan Anda tentang Halo Vale ke
[email protected] atau kirimkan surat ke DP 23B.
Surat yang dimuat akan mendapatkan suvenir menarik.
Send your opinion, comment and feedback about Halo Vale to internal.

Nico Kanter
PRESIDENT DIRECTOR & CEO
PT VALE INDONESIA TBK
Pembaca yang budiman.
Mungkin masih ada di antara kita yang ingat kutipan Shakespeare dalam dramanya yang terkenal, Romeo and Juliet: “What’s in a name?”—apalah arti
sebuah nama? Tanpa mengurangi penghargaan kita kepada dramawan dunia tersebut, kiranya kita sepakat bahwa tiap nama memiliki makna. Maka,
dalam konteks ini, perubahan nama perusahaan kita menjadi PT Vale Indonesia Tbk tentunya membawa serta spirit dan nilai-nilai baru perusahaan.
Di sisi lain, patut pula disadari bahwa perubahan nama tersebut merupakan suatu dinamika dunia industri. Sebagaimana kehidupan sendiri terus
berubah. Dalam perubahan itulah kita dituntut untuk mampu menyesuaikan diri. Pada akhirnya, kemampuan untuk beradaptasi dan kompak menjadi
syarat bertahan dan majunya suatu masyarakat, perusahaan, bahkan negara dan bangsa. Sejarah telah membuktikannya.
Atas nama direksi, saya mengucapkan selamat atas penerbitan perdana majalah Halo Vale, pengganti majalah Inkomunikasi yang telah menemani
kita sejak 1990. Semoga majalah ini bisa menjadi media bagi kita dalam menjalankan visi, misi, dan nilai-nilai perusahaan. Sekaligus media untuk
membangun semangat dan kekompakan dalam mewujudkan tiga prinsip penting perusahaan, yakni keselamatan kerja, kesejahteraan karyawan, dan
tanggung jawab sosial perusahaan.
Mari kita rayakan kebersamaan dalam menatap masa depan yang lebih baik.
Dear readers,
Some of us may remember that famous quote from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet: “What’s in a name?” With all due respect to the legendary playwright, I
think we can all agree that every name has a meaning. This means that in this case, the change of our company name to PT Vale Indonesia Tbk brings with it
a new spirit and new values to the company.
On the other hand, it is important to understand that rebranding is part of an industry’s dynamics, just as life itself continues to change. The presence of
change requires us to adapt. At the end of the day, the ability to adapt and stay unified are the requirements needed for a community, company and even
country and nation to survive and progress. History has proven this.
On behalf of the board of directors, I congratulate the inaugural publication of Halo Vale magazine, replacing Inkomunikasi which has been with us since 1990. I
hope this magazine can become a medium for implementing the company’s vision, mission and values; and for encouraging enthusiasm and a sense of unity
in achieving the company’s three important principles, namely work safety, employee welfare and corporate social responsibility.
Let us celebrate our togetherness as we make the journey to a brighter future.

“Selamat Datang Nama Baru!”
Perayaan yang meriah dan dipenuhi atmosfer kekeluargaan.
Perayaan yang dinanti-nantikan itu akhirnya berlangsung
juga pada 24 Januari silam di Sorowako. Ya, perayaan yang
menandai nama baru PT Vale Indonesia Tbk (PT Vale). Sejak
2010, PT International Nickel Indonesia Tbk, sebagai anak
perusahaan Inco Ltd, resmi lebur dalam organisasi Vale.
Perhelatan berlangsung meriah di dua tempat. Pertama
di area parkir Mine Harapan, dari pagi hingga petang.
Dilanjutkan di Gedung Pertemuan Ontaeluwu pada malam
harinya. Dengan tagline “Nama Baru, Semangat Baru”,
perayaan melibatkan ribuan karyawan dan manajemen
PT Vale. Semua berbaur penuh suka cita.
Acara dimeriahkan dengan games, ratusan doorprize,
penampilan band karyawan, dan bintang tamu band
Sheila on 7 di pengujung acara. Inilah sebuah pesta
dengan atmosfer yang penuh keakraban. Presiden Direktur
& CEO PT Vale Nico Kanter, Chief Operating Officer Josimar
Pires, dan Vice President Director Bernardus Irmanto,
misalnya, kerap menjadi incaran karyawan untuk bisa
saling menyapa, bercengkerama, dan foto bersama.
Pada puncak acara di Ontaeluwu, sejumlah direksi memilih
berbaur dengan karyawan, yang mengajak serta keluarganya.
“Saya di luar saja. Ngobrol-ngobrol dan bersilahturahmi
dengan karyawan,” ujar Nico Kanter, yang mengenakan
kemeja kasual Vale, ditemani Josimar Pires.
“Event yang melibatkan manajemen dan karyawan seperti
ini bagus sekali. Manajemen bisa langsung turun bertemu
karyawan,” ungkap Mercy (33) dari Mining Department
mengomentari acara perayaan. Acara juga ditandai dengan
diresmikannya papan nama bertuliskan ”PT Vale Indonesia
Tbk” di area parkir Mine Harapan, pengoperasian perdana
bus baru karyawan, dan peluncuran situs vale.com/indonesia.
Sambutan Positif
Sambutan positif juga dilayangkan oleh Ketua Serikat
Pekerja Kimia, Energi, Pertambangan, Minyak Gas Bumi, dan
Umum (SP-KEP) Unit Kerja PT Vale, Andi Karman. Dia menilai
perubahan nama perusahaan merupakan salah satu langkah
besar perusahaan untuk semakin maju.
“Tentu akan bertambah baik, karena dibarengi komitmen
positif Vale, seperti memprioritaskan keselamatan kerja
dan manajemen yang transparan. Termasuk menempatkan
hubungan antara manajemen dan karyawan sebagai mitra
kerja,” tambah Andi Karman.

Dalam sambutannya, Josimar Pires mengatakan bahwa
visi dan misi baru PT Vale perlu dijalankan oleh seluruh
manajemen dan karyawan secara kompak. “Karena visi dan
misi tersebut menjadi pedoman dan arah perusahaan ke
depan,” ungkap Josimar.
Rangkaian acara peresmian nama baru PT Vale kemudian
dilanjutkan dalam acara Pesta Rakyat, 16-17 Maret, di
Camp Site, Sorowako. Dikemas meriah, acara sedikitnya
dinikmati oleh 20.000 karyawan dan masyarakat Sorowako
dan sekitarnya. Pawai lampion yang diikuti siswa sekolah,
organisasi kepemudaan, karyawan hingga kontraktor, taritarian, dan suguhan musik band Gigi mewarnai pesta rakyat
tersebut. []

“Welcome, New Name!”
A glorious celebration with a family-filled atmosphere
The long-awaited celebration finally took place on 24
January in Sorowako; an event signifying the company’s
official change of name to PT Vale Indonesia Tbk (PT Vale).
Since 2010, PT International Nickel Indonesia Tbk, as a
subsidiary of Inco Ltd, had officially been merged into the
Vale organization.
Celebrations occurred in two places: first at the Mine
Harapan parking area from morning until evening, then
at the Ontaeluwu Meeting Hall at night. With the tagline
“New Name, New Spirit”, the celebrations involved
thousands of PT Vale employees and managerial staff.
Everyone mingled in an atmosphere of festivity.
The audience was entertained by games, hundreds of
door prizes, a live band consisting of employees and the
performance of guest band Sheila on 7. The celebration
was full of camaraderie. PT Vale President Director and CEO
Nico Kanter, Chief Operations Officer Josimar Pires, and
Vice President Director Bernardus Irmanto were frequently
approached by employees and joined them for a chat, a
laugh and group photographs.
At the peak of the event in Ontaeluwu, a number of directors
chose to mingle with employees, who had invited their family
members along to the event. “I prefer to be outside, chatting
and talking with employees,” said Nico Kanter, who wore a
casual shirt, accompanied by Josimar Pirez.
“Events involving company management and employees
like this are very good. The management can come right
down and meet employees,” said Mercy (33) from the
Mining Department, commenting on the day’s events. The
celebration was also marked by the inauguration of PT Vale’s
new nameplate located in the Mine Harapan parking area,
the operation of a new bus fleet for employees, and the
launch of the vale.com/indonesia website.
Positive Response
A positive response was given by the Chairman of PT Vale’s
chapter of the Chemical, Energy, Oil and General Mining
Workers’ Union (SP-KEP), Andi Karman. He said the renaming
of the company was a major step which would help advance
the company.
“Of course it will be better, because it has been accompanied
by Vale’s positive commitments to things such as prioritizing
work safety and having a transparent management; also
to placing managerial staff and employees in a position of
partnership,” said Andi Karman.

Sejarah Panjang Dua
Raksasa Tambang
Inco dan Vale. Dua perusahaan raksasa ini punya
sejarah panjang di sektor pertambangan skala dunia
Jauh sebelum kesepakatan pembelian saham Inco Limited
oleh Vale, dua korporasi itu telah merekam jejak sukses
dalam industri pertambangan. Yang satu produsen
nikel terbesar nomor dua di dunia, sementara yang lain
merupakan salah satu perusahaan multi-tambang berskala
global.
International Nickel Company berdiri pada 1 April 1902
dan berkantor pusat di New Jersey, Amerika Serikat. Pada
1916, International Nickel Company of Canada, Ltd didirikan
sebagai anak perusahaan International Nickel Company yang
berbasis di Kanada, dan berkantor pusat di New York. Pada
1928, International Nickel Company of Canada, Ltd berubah
menjadi induk perusahaan melalui pertukaran saham.
Nikel yang dihasilkan Inco menjadi saksi berbagai peristiwa
penting di dunia. Mesin pesawat terbang pertama
menggunakan poros baja nikel. Sejak saat itu dimulailah
hubungan tak terpisahkan antara nikel dan industri
penerbangan.
Bahkan logam campuran nikel produksi Inco menjadi
komponen penting dalam pesawat Apollo 11 yang
membawa Neil Armstrong ke Bulan pada 1969. Sepanjang
Perang Dunia II, Inco menyuplai 680 juta kilogram nikel dan
jenis logam lain kepada negara-negara sekutu.
Pada awal 1968, Inco mulai masuk ke Indonesia melalui
kesepakatan awal dengan Pemerintah Indonesia terkait
pemanfaatan cadangan nikel di Sulawesi. Kontrak Karya
ditandatangani pada 27 Juli tahun yang sama.
10
Ha l o Va l e I Ed isi M ei 2012
L AP O R A N UTAMA
Pada Juni 1970, PT International Nickel Indonesia (PTI), anak
perusahaan yang sepenuhnya dimiliki Inco, mengonfirmasi
adanya cadangan bijih nikel laterit dalam jumlah signifikan
di Sorowako. Pada 1977, pabrik nikel utama di Sorowako
dibangun, dan PTI secara resmi berdiri.
Pada 1988, Inco menjual 20 persen saham PTI kepada
Sumitomo Metal Mining Company. Selanjutnya, pada 1990,
PTI go public dengan melepas 20 persen sahamnya ke publik.
Menjadi PT Vale
Vale juga punya sejarah yang tidak kalah panjang.
Perusahaan ini, yang sebelumnya bernama Companhia Vale
do Rio Doce atau CVRD, didirikan pada 1 Juni 1942 oleh
Pemerintah Federal Brasil. Tujuh tahun kemudian, 1949,
CVRD menjadi perusahaan pengekspor 80 persen bijih
besi asal Brasil. Pada era 1980-an, CVRD mulai melebarkan
unit bisnisnya dengan memproduksi alumunium di Rio de
Janeiro.
Pada 1997, CVRD diprivatisasi di bawah Brazil Consortium.
Dan 10 tahun kemudian, 2007, CVRD mengubah namanya
menjadi Vale. Setahun sebelumnya, pemegang saham
Inco secara resmi menyetujui pengambilalihan saham oleh
Vale, lewat pembelian saham senilai 18,9 miliar dollar AS.
Ini merupakan akuisisi termahal yang pernah dilakukan
oleh perusahaan Amerika Latin. Inco Limited kemudian
bertransformasi menjadi Vale Inco Limited.

Selang tiga tahun kemudian, Mei 2010, Vale Inco
mengumumkan langkah berikutnya dengan mengubah
nama menjadi Vale. Perubahan itu menyelaraskan
perusahaan dengan operasional Vale di seluruh dunia,
sehingga memantapkan posisinya sebagai salah satu
perusahaan tambang terbesar di dunia.
Vale adalah perusahaan tambang terbesar kedua di dunia
dan terbesar di Benua Amerika. Vale menjadi penghasil bijih
besi terbesar dan penghasil nikel terbesar kedua di dunia.
Vale juga masuk dalam jajaran penghasil mangan dan ferroalloy terbesar.
Selain itu, Vale juga meneliti, memproduksi, dan menjual
tembaga, batubara, logam platinum, serta logam mulia. Vale
juga aktif di sektor logistik, energi, dan baja.
Perubahan yang terjadi di Kanada, juga terjadi di Indonesia.
PTI, yang mayoritas sahamnya dimiliki Inco, berubah
mengikuti induk perusahaannya. Tanggal 24 Januari 2012
adalah hari yang bersejarah bagi PTI, yang telah beroperasi di
Sorowako selama 44 tahun. Pada hari itu, PTI resmi berganti
nama menjadi PT Vale Indonesia Tbk.
Inilah suatu perubahan yang membawa kita menjadi bagian
dari perusahaan multi-tambang berkelas dunia. []

A Long History of
Two Mining Giants
Inco and Vale: two giant companies with
a long history in world-class mining
Long before the agreement was made for Vale to buy
shares of Inco Limited, the two corporations already had a
successful track record in the mining industry. One was the
world’s second-largest producer of nickel; the other was a
multi-mining company with operations on a global scale.
International Nickel Company was founded on 1 April 1902
with headquarters in New Jersey, USA. In 1916, Canadabased International Nickel Company of Canada, Ltd was
founded as a subsidiary of International Nickel Company,
with headquarters in New York. In 1928, International Nickel
Company of Canada, Ltd went through a changeover,
becoming the parent company through a stock swap.
12
Ha l o Va l e I Ed isi M ei 2012
The nickel produced by Inco has witnessed many historical
events. The engine of the world’s first airplane used a nickel
steel shaft. Since then the relationship between the nickel
and aviation industries has been inseparable.
In fact, a nickel alloy produced by Inco was used as an
important component in the Apollo 11 spacecraft which
took Neil Armstrong to the moon in 1969. During World War
II, Inco supplied 680 million kilograms of nickel and other
metals to armies of the Allied Forces.
In early 1968, Inco entered Indonesia through an initial
agreement made with the Indonesian government regarding
the utilization of nickel deposits in Sulawesi.
A Contract of Work was signed on 27 July that year.
COVER STORY
In June 1970, PT International Nickel Indonesia (PTI), a wholly
owned subsidiary of Inco, confirmed the presence of lateritic
nickel ore deposits in significant amounts in Sorowako. In
1977, a major nickel plant was constructed in Sorowako and
PTI was officially established.
In 1988, Inco sold 20 percent of PTI’s shares to Sumitomo
Metal Mining Company. In 1990, PTI became a publicly listed
company with the sale of 20 percent of its shares to public.
Becoming PT Vale
Vale also has a long history which is not less impressive. This
company, which had previously been called Companhia
Vale do Rio Doce or CVRD, was founded on 1 June 1942 by
the Federal Government of Brazil. Seven years later, in 1949,
CVRD became the exporter of 80 percent of Brazil’s iron
ore production. In the 1980s, CVRD expanded its portfolio
through aluminum production in Rio de Janeiro.
In 1997, CVRD was privatized under the Brazil Consortium.
Ten years later, in 2007, CVRD was renamed to Vale. In the
previous year, Inco shareholders officially approved the stock
takeover by Vale through the purchase of shares valued at
$18.9 billion. This was the most expensive acquisition that
had ever occurred in Latin America. Inco Limited was then
transformed into Vale Inco Limited.
Three years later, in May 2010, Vale Inco announced its name
change to Vale. The change was made to match other Vale
operations worldwide, making it one of the biggest mining
companies in the world.
Vale is the second largest mining company in the world and
the largest in the American continent. Vale has become the
world’s biggest producer of iron ore and second-biggest
producer of nickel. Vale is also a leading producer of
manganese and ferroalloys.
Vale is involved in the research, production and marketing
of copper, coal, platinum group metals and precious metals;
and active in the logistics, energy and steel industries.
The changes that occurred in Canada also took place in
Indonesia. PTI, whose majority of shares is owned by Inco,
changed alongside its parent company. The date 24 January
2012 became a historic one for PTI, who had been operating
in Sorowako for 44 years. On that day, PTI was officially
renamed PT Vale (PT Vale Indonesia Tbk).
This is a change that now makes us part of a world-class
multi-mining corporation. []

Makna di Balik Nama Baru
Ada arti penting di balik reposisi dan rebranding perusahaan.
Sepanjang satu dekade terakhir, dunia tambang mengalami
pasang-surut, termasuk bisnis nikel. Pada akhir 2008,
misalnya. Waktu itu pasokan melebihi permintaan,
sehingga harga nikel terkoreksi cukup tajam di pasar global.
Dampaknya langsung dirasakan oleh PT Vale, apalagi biaya
bahan bakar ikut membengkak.
Di luar persoalan operasionalisasi, PT Vale sebagai pemegang
kontrak karya pertambangan, juga diminta Pemerintah
Indonesia untuk memenuhi kewajibannya mengembangkan
operasinya di Provinsi Sulawesi Tengah dan Sulawesi
Tenggara. “Saat ini area produktif kita masih berada di
Sorowako, Sulawesi Selatan. Investasi ke depan diarahkan
untuk mengembangkan area lain yang sudah dieksplorasi,”
kata Vice President Director PT Vale Bernardus Irmanto, awal
Oktober 2011 silam.
“Maka kehadiran Vale sebagai pemilik saham yang baru
merupakan suatu tanda baik bagi perusahaan. Vale
memiliki komitmen investasi dan visi menjadi perusahaan
tambang nomor satu di dunia,” ujar Bernardus Irmanto. Vale
merupakan perusahaan multi-tambang yang operasinya
tersebar di 5 benua, 38 negara, dan berkantor pusat di Rio De
Janeiro, Brasil.
Di mata Vale, Indonesia merupakan aset yang potensial. Hal
itu ditegaskan CEO Vale Murilo Ferreira ketika berkunjung ke
Sorowako awal Oktober silam. “Indonesia memiliki sumber
daya alam dan sumber daya manusia yang sangat potensial.
Kami sangat bangga bisa bersama kalian,” ujar Murilo
Ferreira.
Ke depan, Vale akan menanamkan investasi di Indonesia
sebesar 2 miliar dollar AS atau senilai Rp18 triliun hingga
2015 nanti. Salah satu proyek yang telah terealisasi adalah
PLTA Karebbe, yang menelan biaya hingga 410 juta dollar AS.
PLTA ini sudah beroperasi sejak Oktober lalu.
Dengan beroperasinya PLTA Karebbe, kini PT Vale dapat
meningkatkan power setting dari 65-70MW menjadi 7780MW, sekaligus meningkatkan produksi kalsin 0,85
kiloton per minggu. Kalsin merupakan produk antara yang
ditambahkan ke dalam furnace.
Perbaikan beberapa fasilitas kerja juga terus dilakukan.
Ini dimaksudkan untuk meningkatkan kenyamanan dan
keamanan karyawan selama bekerja.
“Nama besar Vale serta misi untuk menjadi yang terbaik,
memberikan harapan bagi kita. Juga dalam menghadapi
renegosiasi kontrak karya yang akan berakhir pada 2025
nanti,” ungkap Bernardus Irmanto.

COVER STORY
The Meaning Behind
a New Name
There is an important meaning behind the
repositioning and rebranding of a company.
In the last decade, the mining industry including the nickel
business has been through ebbs and flows. In late 2008, for
instance, supply was greater than demand, causing nickel
prices to fall sharply on the global market. This greatly
affected PT Vale; what was more, at the time fuel prices were
also on the rise.
Aside from its current operations, PTI as the holder of a
Contract of Work has been required by the Indonesian
government to meet its obligations to expand operations to
the provinces of Central and Southeast Sulawesi. “Currently
our production area is limited to Sorowako, South Sulawesi.
Future investments will be aimed at developing other areas
which have been explored,” said PT Vale Vice President
Director Bernardus Irmanto in October 2011.
“The presence of Vale as a new shareholder bodes well for
the company. Vale has a commitment and vision to become
the Number 1 mining company in the world,” said Bernardus
Irmanto. Vale is a multi-mining corporation with operations
in 5 continents and 38 countries, with headquarters in Rio De
Janeiro, Brazil.
In the eyes of Vale, Indonesia is seen as a potential asset.
This was emphasized by Vale CEO Murilo Ferreira during
his visit to Sorowako in early October last year. “There is
great potential in Indonesia’s natural resources and human
resources. We are very proud to be with you,” said Murilo
Ferreira.
Vale plans to invest $2 billion or IDR18 trillion in Indonesia by
2015. One project that has been achieved is the building of
the Karebbe Hydroelectric Power Generator, which cost $410
million. The plant started operations last October.
Thanks to the Karebbe generator, PT Vale has been able
to increase its power setting from 65-70MW to 77-80MW,
and increase calcine production by 0.85 kilotons per week.
Calcine is a intermediate product that is added to the
furnace.
Improvements of various facilities have been made
continually to increase the comfort and safety of employees.
“Vale’s reputation and its mission to become the best give us
hope, including in the re-negotiation of our Contract of Work
ending in 2025,” said Bernardus Irmanto.

Misi, Visi, dan Nilai
Sebagai Filosofi Kerja
Nilai perusahaan berfungsi sebagai penyemangat
dan penyatu entitas perusahaan.
Surat elektronik CEO Vale Murilo Ferreira itu masuk ke
outlook komputer karyawan pada pertengahan Februari
lalu. Pesannya berisi ucapan selamat atas pencapaian
karyawan Vale di seluruh dunia sepanjang 2011. Perusahaan
telah berhasil meningkatkan laba bersih dan menunjukkan
kinerja yang profesional. Murilo Ferreira juga salut kepada
karyawan yang telah berjalan di jalur yang benar dan tampil
mengesankan.
Selain menyampaikan berita bahagia, Murilo juga
mengingatkan seluruh karyawan agar tetap memprioritaskan
keselamatan kerja. Pasalnya, 15 kecelakaan fatal yang terjadi
sepanjang pada 2011 membuat Murilo Ferreira sedih dan
bersimpati. “Saya ingin perusahaan ini sehat, aman, dan
menjadi tempat kerja yang menyenangkan. Dan saya yakin
hal ini hanya dapat dicapai dengan usaha bersama,” ujar dia
mengimbau.

Sebagai pemimpin tertinggi perusahaan multi-tambang
yang tersebar di 38 negara, Murilo Ferreira tidak pernah
bosan mengingatkan arti penting keselamatan kerja. Ketika
berkunjung ke Sorowako pada awal Oktober 2011 lalu dalam
peresmian PLTA Karebbe, dia juga menyampaikan hal yang
sama. “Produksi memang penting. Tapi lebih penting lagi
keselamatan,” tegasnya.
Hal itu sejalan dengan misi, visi, dan nilai Vale, yang
tidak semata menjadi perusahaan tambang kelas dunia.
Perusahaan juga harus bisa memberi nilai jangka panjang
dan kebaikan bagi manusia dan Bumi di seluruh unit
usahanya.
L AP O R A N UTAMA
Murilo juga mengisyaratkan bahwa keseimbangan antara
kerja dan keluarga merupakan hal yang penting. Hal itu
merupakan salah satu wujud dari nilai perusahaan. “Saya
sengaja membawa istri berkunjung ke Sorowako. Karena saya
ingin mengatakan kepada Anda bahwa keluarga adalah hal
yang utama,” tutur Murilo Ferreira.
Makna Nilai Perusahaan
Olivier Serrat, Head of Knowledge Management Centre Asian
Development Bank (ADB), dalam artikelnya “A Primer on
Corporate Values”, yang diterbitkan Knowledge Solutions,
newsletter ADB, Juni 2010, menyebutkan, nilai perusahaan
adalah penyemangat sebuah lingkungan kerja, penyatu
entitas perusahaan, dan membentuk pencitraan perusahaan
kepada publik. “Nilai perusahaan juga sebuah filosofi dan
etika untuk bertindak ke dalam (perusahaan) dan keluar
(publik),” ungkap Serrat.
Hal senada juga disampaikan Diane Stacey, pakar
manajemen bisnis dari Kennedy Western University, Amerika
Serikat. Dia mengatakan, nilai perusahaan yang selalu
berkolaborasi dengan visi dan misi perusahaan akan menjadi
pijakan bisnis, memvisualisasikan tujuan perusahaan ke
depan, dan menjadi panduan untuk mencapai kesuksesan.
Visi, misi, dan nilai perusahaan juga menjadi standar untuk
mendapatkan praktik terbaik dalam menjalankan bisnis.

Mission, Vision, and Values
as a Work Philosophy
Company values encourage and bring together
various entities in the company.
The message from Vale CEO Murilo Ferreira landed in
employees’ electronic mailboxes in mid-February. In it,
he congratulated Vale employees worldwide on their
achievements throughout 2011. The company managed to
increase its net profit and performed professionally. Murilo
Ferreira also applauded employees who did the right thing
and performed impressively.
This was in line with Vale’s mission, vision, and values, which
aimed not only to become world-class, but also to become a
company with long-term value – good for humanity and the
Earth – through its operations.
Aside from spreading the good news, Murilo also reminded
employees to make work safety a priority. He said the 15 fatal
accidents that happened in 2011 saddened him and evoked
his sympathy. “I want this company to be a healthy, safe
and pleasant place of work. And I believe this can only be
achieved if we make a joint effort,” he said.
Murilo also indicated the importance of having a worklife balance. It was a reflection of the company’s values. “I
intentionally brought my wife to Sorowako because I want to
tell you that family is the main thing,” said Murilo Ferreira.
As the highest executive in the multi-mining corporation
which operates in 38 countries, Murilo Ferreira never tires
of reminding employees the importance of work safety. His
visit to inaugurate the Karebbe plant in Sorowako in early
October 2011 was no different. “Production is important. But
even more important is safety,” he said.
Olivier Serrat, Head of Knowledge Management Centre
Asian Development Bank (ADB), in his article, “A Primer
on Corporate Values”, in the ADB newsletter, Knowledge
Solutions, of June 2010 said company values provided
encouragement to a working environment, brought together
entities within the company and formed a company’s public
image. “Corporate values are also a philosophy and an ethical
guideline for actions taken inside (the company) and outside
(the public sphere),” said Serrat.
The Significance of Company Values
Similarly, business management expert Diane Stacey from
Kennedy Western University, USA, said the values of a
company that was in constant collaboration with its vision
and mission created the business’ foothold, the visualization
of the company’s goals and the guidelines for achieving
success. A company’s vision, mission and values provided the
standards towards achieving best practice in business. []

Peremajaan Alat untuk
Peningkatan Produksi
Dari furnace 2 rebuild hingga perbaikan kanal PLTA Larona.
Guna meningkatkan kinerja, PT Vale melakukan penggantian
dan perbaikan di sejumlah peralatan produksinya. Proyek
bernama “Major Shut Down” itu meliputi 26 jenis pekerjaan,
tersebar di Process Plant, Thermal, dan dua PLTA (Larona
dan Balambano). Empat di antaranya yang terpenting
adalah rebuild (peremajaan) furnace 2, kiln 1 dan kiln 2, dan
perbaikan kanal air sekaligus penggantian turbin di PLTA
Larona.
Gil Samoila, Senior Project Manager Major Shut Down,
mengatakan, proyek ini bertujuan meningkatkan
performa kerja alat produksi PT Vale. “Setelah 15 tahun,
beberapa peralatan perlu diremajakan dengan melakukan
penggantian komponen,” ujar Gil Samoila.
Di Process Plant, aktivitas perbaikan telah berlangsung sejak
pekan ketiga November 2011. Proyek itu selesai pada kuartal
II 2012. Yang paling menarik dari proyek ini, yang melibatkan
100 tenaga teknis dan 800 pekerja lokal, adalah penggantian
furnace 2 dengan desain baru dan lebih bertenaga.
“Furnace 2 sekarang memiliki kapasitas produksi lebih besar
dan menghemat konsumsi energi dibandingkan desain
sebelumnya,” tambah Gil.
Kelebihan furnace 2 adalah usia pakai dan operasi selama 15
tahun. Sebelumnya hanya 10 tahun. Termasuk atap furnace
yang sebelumnya perlu diganti setiap 2 tahun sekali, kini
menjadi 5 tahun sekali.
Desain furnace 2 ini dirancang sendiri oleh karyawan
PT Vale. “Selama setahun, dibantu 4 konsultan, kami
merancang spesifikasi furnace 2 yang paling presisi dari
sebelumnya,” kata Gil. Sedangkan untuk komponen, furnace 2
menggunakan produk dari Asia dan Afrika Selatan.
Perbaikan di Larona
Selain itu, shut down di PLTA Larona juga tak kalah
pentingnya. PLTA yang telah beroperasi sejak 1979 ini
memerlukan perbaikan lebih komprehensif di bagian kanal
air dan turbin pembangkitnya. Perbaikan telah dikerjakan
sejak Oktober 2011 lalu.
Pekerjaan di Larona dilakukan dalam dua tahap. Pertama,
melakukan penambalan pada beberapa bagian kanal air
sepanjang 6,9 kilometer yang mengalami kebocoran. Kanal
merupakan saluran buatan dengan kedalaman lima meter.
Penambalan dilakukan oleh para pekerja ahli agar pasokan
air ke dalam turbin tetap lancar.
“Pekerjaan tersebut kami selesaikan dalam tempo 2 kali
8 jam. Pada kesempatan tersebut kami juga melakukan
penggantian overhead ground wire (OGW) pada jaringan 150
kv yang putus saat terjadi gempa beberapa waktu yang lalu,”
ungkap Manager of Hydro Operation PT Vale, Yusri Yunus.
Sedangkan pada tahap kedua dilakukan penggantian
generator dan runner turbin nomor 2, yang mengalami
kavitasi. Proyek ini dilakukan melalui beberapa tahapan
penting, seperti dry test, wet test, load rejection test, dan
terakhir reliability run test.

Ha l o Va l e I Ed isi M ei 2012
K INER J A
Sejak 25 Februari 2012 dilakukan penggantian generator
dan runner turbin nomor 1, dan diharapkan selesai pada Mei
2012. Untuk proyek ini PTVI didukung oleh Andritz Hydro,
perusahaan turbin kelas dunia asal Austria. Sebelumnya,
Andritz dipercaya sebagai vendor dan pelaksana pemasangan
komponen hydro mechanical, electrical, dan control PLTA
Karebbe.
Dengan dilakukannya penggantian generator dan runner
tersebut, PLTA Larona akan lebih andal dalam menghasilkan
energi listrik sekitar 165 MW (continous power capacity).
Tantangan Pengerjaan
Selama shut down di Larona, menurut Manager of Hydro
Maintenance PT Vale Muammar, hanya terjadi satu
kecelakaan ringan. “Dari 80 pekerja sejak Oktober hingga
selesai pada Februari, hanya ada satu pekerja yang
mengalami keseleo. Selain itu aman,” ujar Muammar.
Sedangkan di Process Plant, Gil Samoila mengatakan,
disiplin kerja dan pengerjaan yang sesuai perencanaan
perlu ditingkatkan. “Ini merupakan tantangan kami. Dua
hal tersebut merupakan kunci keselamatan dan patokan
pengerjaan proyek sesuai target,” kata Gil Samoila. []

Rejuvenation of Equipment
to Increase Productioni
From furnace 2 rebuild to repairing the canal at Larona
Hydroelectric Generator.
To improve performance, PT Vale has replaced and repaired
some of its production equipment. The project named
“Major Shut Down” involved 26 types of jobs done at the
Process Plant, thermal equipment and the two (Larona and
Balambano) hydroelectric generators. Four of the most
important jobs were furnace 2 rebuild; replacing No. 1 and 2
kilns; repairing the water canal; and replacing the turbines of
the Larona generator.
Gil Samoila, Senior Project Manager Major Shut Down,
said the project was aimed at improving the performance
of PT Vale’s production equipment. “After 15 years, some
equipment needs rejuvenating and this is done by replacing
various components,” said Gil Samoila.
Repairs at the Process Plant commenced in the third week
of November 2011. The project is finished in quarter II 2012
The highlight of the project, involving 100 technicians and
800 local workers, was the replacement of furnace 2 with
a new, more powerful design. “Furnace 2 now has a bigger
production capacity and is better at saving energy compared
to the previous design,” added Gil.
The advantage of furnace 2 is its operational lifetime of 15
years compared to the earlier version’s 10 years. Also, the
previous version required the furnace roof to be replaced
every 2 years; now this only needs to be done every 5 years.
furnace 2 was designed by PT Vale employees. “For one year,
assisted by 4 consultants, we designed the specifications
of furnace 2 to match the earlier version as precisely as
possible,” said Gil. For its components, furnace 2 used
products from Asia and South Africa.
Repairs at Larona
The shut down at the Larona hydroelectric power generator
has been no less important. The generator, which started
operations in 1979, was in need of comprehensive repairs
to its water canal and turbine. Repair works commenced in
October 2011.
The work in Larona was conducted in two stages. First,
patches were applied to parts of the 6.9 kilometer canal that
leaked. The canal itself is a man-made channel five meters
deep. The patchwork was done by experts in order to ensure
that the water supply to the turbine remained stable.
“We finished the job in two 8-hour sessions. We also changed
the overhead ground wire (OGW) on the 150-kv network
which broke during an earthquake a while ago,” said Manager
of Hydro Operation, Yusri Yunus.
In the second stage, the generator and No. 2 runner turbine,
which had cavitated, were replaced. This project consisted
of several important steps such as the dry test, wet test, load
rejection test and, finally, the reliability run test.

P ERFOR MANC E
The job of replacing the generator and No. 1 runner turbine
began on 25 February 2012 and is scheduled for completion
in May 2012. For this project, PT Vale is supported by Andritz
Hydro, an Austrian-based world-class manufacturer of
turbines. Previously, Andritz was entrusted to act as the
vendor and installer of the hydro mechanical, electrical and
control components of the Karebbe hydroelectric generator.
It is expected that the new generators and runners will allow
the Larona hydroelectric plant to better produce electricity
about 165 MW (continuous power capacity).
Job Challenges
Muammar, Manager of Hydro Maintenance, said that during
the shutdown at Larona just one small accident occurred.
“From the 80 workers who started in October and finished in
February, only one sprained an ankle. Apart from that, things
have been safe,” said Muammar.
At the Process Plant, Gil Samoila said work discipline and
achieving targets as planned were things that needed much
improvement. “This is a challenge for us. Those two things are
the key to safety and are standard for completing a project
according to target,” said Gil Samoila. []

Wajah Baru
Bandara Sorowako
Sejak dibangun tahun 1978, untuk pertama kalinya
Bandara Sorowako direnovasi besar-besaran.
PT Vale melakukan perbaikan fasilitas dan upgrading petugas
bandara Sorowako guna meningkatkan keamanan dan
kenyamanan penerbangan. Pekerjaan dibagi dalam dua
proyek: airport security upgrade dan airport runway overlay.
“Hal ini sesuai dengan ketentuan UU Penerbangan terkait
keselamatan, keamanan, dan operasi bandara,” ungkap
Sidransyah Yusri, Manager Facilities & Transportation Service
PT Vale.
Proyek pertama meliputi instalasi mesin X- ray yang sinergis
dengan pembuatan sterile area dan non-sterile area. Nantinya,
sterile area hanya dapat diakses petugas bandara dan calon
penumpang pesawat. Sterile area berkapasitas 40 orang itu,
juga akan dilengkapi pendingin ruangan, televisi LCD, dan
jaringan internet nirkabel untuk kenyamanan penumpang.
Sedangkan terkait keamanan penerbangan, PT Vale
menggelar inhouse training bagi petugas keamanan
bandara. Pelatihan mendatangkan penguji dari Direktorat
Perhubungan Udara Kementerian Perhubungan, diikuti 20
petugas dari Defense Security Service (DSS) pada November
2011 lalu.
Proyek kedua, airport security & safety, meliputi pelebaran
landasan pesawat sepanjang tujuh meter. Hal ini, tambah
Sidransyah Yusri, sesuai ketentuan International Civil Aviation
Organization. Untuk pesawat Fokker 50 yang digunakan PT
Vale saat ini, lebar landasan minimal harus 30 meter.
Upgrading petugas Pertolongan Kecelakaan Penerbangan
dan Pemadam Kebakaran (PKP-PK/pemadam kebakaran
khusus bandara) juga dilakukan. “Dengan adanya upgrading
ini, PKP-PK naik dari kategori 4 menjadi kategori 5.
Artinya, response time pemadam kebakaran lebih baik dari
sebelumnya,” ujar Sidransyah.
Pembenahan fisik landasan itu juga ditambah dengan
pembuatan drainase, temporary apron & taxi way, serta
runway overlay. Dalam pengerjaannya, proyek ini juga
dibantu Support Engineering Service dan dua kontraktor
(Thiess dan Beca).
Sedangkan untuk petugas non-PKP-PK dan keamanan,
terdapat empat orang yang mendapatkan sertifikasi
pengawas bandara dari Direktorat Perhubungan Udara
Kementerian Perhubungan. Dua orang dari bagian operation,
dan dua orang dari maintenance.
Dengan semua perbaikan itu, kini bandara Sorowako telah
mengantongi Sertifikat Bandar Udara dari Kementerian
Perhubungan Republik Indonesia per tanggal 18 Oktober
2011. []

Ha l o Va l e I Ed isi M ei 2012
PT Vale has made repairs to facilities and trained workers
at Sorowako airport to increase flying safety and comfort.
Repair works were divided into two projects: the airport
security upgrade and the airport runaway overlay. “This is in
line with aviation laws with regards to airport safety, security
and operation,” said Sidransyah Yusri, PT Vale’s Facilities &

The first project involved the installation of X-ray machines
alongside the construction of sterile and non-sterile areas. In
future, the sterile areas would only be accessible to airport

In the second project airport security and safety the width of
the runway was extended by seven meters. Sidransyah Yusri
said this was in accordance with rules of the International
Civil Aviation Organization which require runways for Fokker
50 aircraft, currently used by PT Vale, to have a minimum
width of 30 meters.
Upgrades to the runaway also included the building of drains,
temporary aprons and taxiways and runway overlays. This
project received assistance from the Support Engineering
Service and two contractors (Thiess and Beca).
In terms of flight security, PT Vale conducted in-house
training sessions for airport security officers. The training
sessions which took place in November 2011 involved
examiners from the Ministry of Transportation’s Directorate
General of Civil Aviation and were attended by 20 officers
from the Defense Security Service.
There was also the upgrading of Aircraft Rescue and Fire
Fighting Services (PKP-PK) officers. “The upgrades have
increased our PKP-PK services from being a Category 4 to a
Category 5; this means the response time of the firefighters
will be better than they were before,” said Sidransyah.
Personnel outside security and PKP-PK whose skills were
upgraded include four officers who received airportsupervisor certification from the Ministry of Transportation’s
Directorate General of Civil Aviation – two of them were from
the operations division and two from maintenance.
Thanks to the upgrades, Sorowako airport became the holder
of an Airport Certificate from the Ministry of Transportation
of the Republic of Indonesia on 18 October 2011. []

In the evacuation simulation, FES members were able to
quickly and safely remove a victim trapped inside a vehicle.
In the fire-fighting simulation, FES rapidly extinguished two
burning truck tires.
Maintain Personal Safety
PT Vale’s Senior Coordinator Environment, Health & Safety
(EHS) and head of the organizing committee for K3 Day
Events, Jani Steven Pamona, said the commemoration of the
K3 Month was a campaign opportunity to increase awareness
of the importance of Work Safety and Healthy (K3) among
employees and community members.
Jani said that accidents in the workplace and the
environment are mainly caused by human error. K3 is not
just knowledge, but a concept that people need to put
into practice consciously and willingly. “That’s why the K3
campaign is part of EHS’s routine agenda. And we will never
get tired of socializing it,” added Jani.

Operational Excellence untuk
Produktivitas yang Stabil
PT Vale menerapkan program “Operational Excellence”
di semua lini perusahaan.
Guna mendukung operasionaliasi dan produktivitas di
seluruh sektor, PT Vale membentuk departemen baru
bernama Operational Excellence (OE). Masuk dalam
departemen ini adalah Operation & Maintenance
Improvement Program (OMIP), Vale Production System (VPS),
dan Environmental Management System (EMS), serta Health
and Safety.
OE, yang telah dicanangkan sejak 2011, memiliki program
untuk meningkatkan kinerja operasionalisasi berdasarkan
tindakan yang benar, tepat, dan akurat. Implementasinya
ditujukan pada sumber daya manusia PT Vale, sistem
manajemen, operasionalisasi, sektor perawatan peralatan
produksi, kesehatan dan keselamatan kerja, serta produksi
yang berkelanjutan.
38
Ha l o Va l e I Edisi M ei 2012
SGM Operational Excellence PT Vale Mario Paventi
menyambut baik implementasi program OE. “Saya yakin,
penerapan program OE yang memiliki visi produktivitas lebih
baik, bekerja dengan efisien, nyaman, dan aman ini, dapat
memperbaiki kinerja perusahaan tahun 2012. Dan saya yakin,
hal ini akan memberikan kita semua manfaat,” ujar Mario
Paventi.
Beberapa program OE yang telah dijalankan sejak tahun
lalu dan akan terus dilanjutkan adalah OMIP. Dengan
menjalankan konsep “Plan, Do, Check and Act”, Vale
K INER J A
Management System akan memfokuskan dan mensinergikan
kapasitas produksi dan metode “Stop The Stops” dalam
operasionalisasi dan perawatan alat produksi. Sejak
Agustus 2011, program ini telah diterapkan di 12 proyek
operasionalisasi dan perawatan alat produksi di Process
Plant, dan telah berhasil mengurangi downtime hours.
Menurut Yulius Erwin Tandiayu, Project Leader Conveyor
System Improvement, OMIP merupakan paradigma baru
dalam menganalisis terjadinya keterlambatan produksi.
Pasalnya, OMIP menerapkan metode penilaian yang
komprehensif, di mana analisis dilakukan berdasarkan jejak
rekam dan status peralatan produksi. Setiap permasalahan
pada alat produksi diurai dan dicari akar masalahnya.
Analisis OMIP juga tidak semata pada fisik dan material alat
produksi, melainkan juga memperhitungkan faktor lainnya,
seperti environment, keahlian pekerja, keahlian mekanik,
stok material, dan sebagainya. “Selama ini orang hanya
berpikir kalau faktor penghambat produksi itu melulu soal
alat. Padahal juga bisa karena faktor orang (operator yang
menjalankan alat), mekanik (kesalahan dalam perbaikan),
lingkungan yang kurang nyaman, dan penghambat nonteknis lainnya,” ujar Yulius Erwin.
Menurut Mudriyanto, OMIP Team Leader, Calcine Crane Main
Hoist Improvement, OMIP diimplementasikan agar operasi
produksi dapat berjalan lebih stabil dan tanpa henti. Output
OMIP berupa rekomendasi dan action plan.
Tejo Srinoto, konsultan OMIP dari Relogica, mengatakan,
OMIP dijalankan dengan melakukan analisis lintas fungsi
(cross function analysis) dan perbaikan yang berkelanjutan.
“Intinya, mengelola proyek secara terstruktur,” ujar Tejo.
Penerapan 5S
Dalam implementasinya, OMIP saat ini berfokus di
Departemen Process Plant dengan tetap melibatkan
Departemen Process Plant Engineering dan Supply Chain
Management (SCM) sebagai pendukung.
Program OE lainnya adalah penerapan 5S, yang merupakan
bagian dari implementasi VPS. Program 5S berorientasi
pada budaya resik-rapi agar ruang kerja menjadi nyaman
dan aman untuk bekerja. Sepanjang tahun ini program
Environment and Health and Safety juga diterapkan, dengan
fokus pada konsep lingkungan kerja tanpa kecelakaan. []

Operational Excellence for
Stable Productivity
PT Vale implements an “Operational Excellence”
program on all company lines.
To support PT Vale’s operations and productivity
enhancement, PT Vale has new department called
Operational Excellence (OE), consisting of the Operation
& Maintenance Improvement Program (OMIP), the
Vale Production Systems (VPS) and the Environmental
Management System, Health and Safety program.
Established since 2011, OE has program aimed at increasing
operational performance through correct, precise and
accurate action. It is targeted at PT Vale’s human resources,
management systems, operational systems, production
equipment maintenance sector, work safety and security, and
sustainable production.
PT Vale’s Operational Excellence SGM, Mario Paventi, was
pleased with the implementation of program. “I am sure the
implementation of the OE program, which envisions better
productivity and a workplace that values efficiency, comfort
and safety, will help improve the company’s performance
in 2012. And I am certain we will all benefit from this,” said
Mario Paventi.
OMIP is among the ongoing OE programs implemented since
last year. Applying the concept “Plan, Do, Check and Act”, Vale
Management Systems will focus on, and bring into synergy
the production capacity and the “Stop the Stops” method
for operating and maintaining production equipment. Since
August 2011, this program has been implemented in 12
operational and production equipment maintenance projects
at the Process Plant, successfully reducing downtime hours.
According to Yulius Erwin Tandiayu, Project Leader Conveyor
System Improvement, OMIP sets a new paradigm for
analyzing production delays. OMIP applies a comprehensive
evaluation method in which an analysis is made based on
the track record and status of production equipment. Every
problem concerning production equipment is explored and
the source of that problem is sought.
The OMIP analysis is targeted not only at the physical
and material attributes of the production equipment, but
takes into account other factors such as the environment,
workers’ skills, mechanic’s expertise and material supplies.
“Until now people think the only factor that can slow down
production is equipment; in fact, it can be caused by humans
(the operator of the machine), mechanical factors (errors
in repairs), uncomfortable environments and other nontechnical factors,” said Yulius Erwin.
According to OMIP Team Leader for Calcine Crane Main
Hoist Improvement, Mudriyanto, OMIP was implemented to
stabilize production and ensure it proceeded non-stop. The
output of the OMIP was a set of recommendations and an
action plan.

Currently, the OMIP is focused on the Process Plant
Department while involving Process Plant Engineering
Department and Supply Chain Management (SCM) as

Agar Alam Tetap Selaras
PT Vale melaksanakan sejumlah program lingkungan di sekitar
area tambang, termasuk lingkungan masyarakat.
PT Vale berkomitmen menjaga keselarasan lingkungan
dengan pengelolaan rutin melalui Program Penilaian
Peringkat Kinerja Perusahaan dalam Pengelolaan
Lingkungan Hidup (PROPER) 2011. General Manager
Enviromental Pieter Sampetoding mengatakan, PROPER
meliputi rehabilitasi lahan pasca-tambang, penanganan
limbah cair, sampah B3 (bahan berbahaya dan beracun),
emisi, hingga pengelolaan limbah rumah tangga.
Dalam lima tahun terakhir, total anggaran yang telah
dikeluarkan perusahaan untuk perbaikan lingkungan
mencapai Rp1,3 triliun. “Kami yakin bekerja di perusahaan
dengan kondisi lingkungan baik akan membuat semua
karyawan bahagia,” kata Peter.
Menurut Pieter, pengelolaan lingkungan hidup itu meliputi
semua wilayah kerja PT Vale. Sejak pembukaan lahan
tambang, pengelolaan menjadi nikel, hingga transportasi
ke tempat pengapalan. Perusahaan secara bertahap juga
melakukan penangananan gas SO2 dari cerobong pabrik.
SO2 adalah senyawa gas yang dihasilkan oleh sulfur
(belerang) ketika dipanaskan di tanur peleburan (furnace).
Pada tahun 2011, PT Vale memasang sistem injeksi terbaru
di kiln 5 guna mengurangi kadar SO2. Anggaran untuk
proyek ini senilai 5,5 juta dollar AS atau sekitar Rp50 miliar.
Sementara empat kiln lainnya dilakukan pada 2012 ini.
Jika penambahan sistem injeksi debu itu sudah terpasang
di lima kiln, maka target perusahaan pada 2013 sebesar
0,68 kg SO2 per 1 kg nikel. “Ini merupakan bukti
bahwa perusahaan tidak main-main dalam melakukan
pengelolaan lingkungan hidup,” kata Pieter.
42
Ha l o Va l e I Ed isi M ei 2012
Sebagai perbandingan, target Kementerian Lingkungan
Hidup pada 2011 adalah 1,03 kg SO2 per 1 kg nikel.
Pencapaian perusahaan saat ini 0,93 kg SO2 per 1 kg nikel.
Ini berarti sudah di bawah ambang batas yang ditetapkan
pemerintah.
Selain itu, sejak 2005 PT Vale secara bertahap melakukan
perbaikan pada cerobong asap, memasang alat penangkap
debu, seperti ESP (electrostatic precipitators) di tanur
pengeringan, pereduksi, dan converter. Masuk di dalamnya
sistem baghouse di tanur peleburan. Cara kerja kedua alat
ini adalah menangkap debu dengan sistem elektrik dan
penyaringan seperti vacum cleaner.
Untuk limbah cair, PT Vale juga melakukan penanganan yang
penting. Salah satunya menyangkut lumpur ketika lahan
dibuka. Air yang tergerus dari area tambang terbuka akan
mengalir bebas dan dapat mengakibatkan sedimentasi pada
aliran sungai dan akhirnya ke danau.
Untuk mengantisipasinya, di beberapa titik dibuat kolamkolam penampungan. Ukurannya bervariasi, dari kapasitas
1.000 meter kubik hingga 13 juta meter kubik. Total terdapat
81 kolam penampungan.
Kolam-kolam pengendali sedimen itu juga untuk
mengurangi risiko erosi dan penggerusan di wilayah lingkar
tambang. Kolam-kolam itu akan dikeruk dalam jangka waktu
tertentu. Untuk pengelolaan kolam sedimen tersebut, pada
2011 PT Vale mengeluarkan dana sebesar Rp19,97 miliar.

Pengelolaan Limbah B3
Untuk menangani limbah B3, PT Vale bekerja sama dengan
PT Prasadha Pamuna Limbah Industri (PPLI) di Bogor. PT
Prasadha adalah perusahaan spesialis pengelola sampah B3,
seperti baterai, alat-alat elektronik, dan cairan berbahaya
lainnya.
PT Vale hanya mengumpulkan sampah B3 di sebuah gudang,
kemudian diangkut paling lama setiap 90 hari. “Saya kira
kami tak ada masalah dengan sampah B3. Semua terkelola
dengan baik,” jelas Pieter.
Seperti yang sudah-sudah, PT Vale juga melakukan
pengelolaan limbah atau sampah domestik di lingkungan
masyarakat. Pada 2011, perusahaan mengeluarkan anggaran
sebesar Rp10 miliar untuk teknologi pemisahan sampah
organik dan non-organik. “Tahun 2011 pemasangan
konstruksi sudah selesai. Tahun ini kami harap semua akan
berjalan dengan baik,” pungkas Pieter Sampetoding. []

Keeping Nature in Harmony
PT Vale has conducted several environmental programs
around mining areas, including within communities.
PT Vale is committed to maintaining environmental
harmony through routine management under the
Assessment of Company Performance in Environmental
Management Program (PROPER) 2011. Environmental
General Manager Pieter Sampetoding said PROPER covered
post-mining land rehabilitation, treatment of wastewater,
hazardous and toxic waste and emissions, and household
waste management.
In the last five years, the company has spent a total of
IDR1.3 trillion on environmental rehabilitation. “We
believe that employees who work in a company with good
environmental conditions will be content,” said Pieter.
Pieter said environmental management efforts have been
implemented in all areas of PT Vale from the clearing of
land for mining, the process of nickel production, to the
transportation of the product for shipping. The company is
also in the stage of treating SO2 gases released by factory
stacks. SO2 is produced when sulfur is heated in a furnace.
In 2011, PT Vale installed a new injection system in the No.
5 kiln to reduce SO2 levels. The budget for this project is
$5.5 million or about IDR50 billion. The other four kilns will
have the system installed this year.
Once the dust injection system has been installed in all 5
kilns, the company can expect to have an SO2 emission level
of 0.68 kg for every 1 kg of nickel produced. “This is proof
that the company is not fooling around when it comes to
environmental management,” said Pieter.
As comparison, the Ministry of Environment in 2011 targeted
1.03 kg of SO2 per 1 kg of nickel. Currently, the company
is achieving 0.93 kg SO2 per 1 kg nickel, meaning that it is
already lower than required by government.
Also, since 2005 PT Vale has been repairing stacks and
installing dust collectors such as ESPs (electrostatic
precipitators) in drying kilns, reductors and converters;
and baghouse systems in smelting furnaces. Both types of
equipment collect dust using an electric filtering system like
a vacuum cleaner.
PT Vale also applies important treatment to its wastewater.
One treatment targets the mud in land-cleared areas. Water
running off an open mine area could cause sedimentation to
enter river systems and possibly end up in the lake.

Hazardous waste treatment installation at Rante Pond.
To prevent this, sediment ponds have been created at several
points, with capacities ranging from 1,000 cubic meters to 13
million cubic meters. There are a total of 81 sediment ponds.
These ponds, which control sedimentation, also help reduce
the risk of erosion and grinding in the mine’s surrounding
area. The ponds are dredged regularly. PT Vale in 2011 spent
IDR19.97 billion managing the sedimentation ponds.
Treatment of Hazardous and Toxic Waste (B3)
The treatment of hazardous and toxic waste (B3) is
conducted by PT Vale in cooperation with PT Prasadha
Pamuna Limbah Industri (PPLI) in Bogor. PT Prasadha
specializes in the management of hazardous and toxic waste
such as batteries, electronic goods and hazardous liquids.
PT Vale collects the B3 waste in a warehouse and, in 90 days
at the most, removes it. “I don’t think we have a problem with
B3 waste. It is all managed well,” said Pieter.
As it has done in the past, PT Vale also manages the domestic
waste and garbage from surrounding communities. In
2011, the company spent IDR10 billion on the technology
to separate organic waste from non-organic waste. “The
installation was completed in 2011. We hope all will go well
this year,” said Pieter Sampetoding. []

Lahan Tambang yang
Kembali Menghijau
Rehabilitasi lahan adalah bagian tak terpisahkan
dari kegiatan operasional PT Vale.
Karung-karung berisi pupuk berjajar di area Bukit Inalahi.
Tanaman penutup dan perintis sudah siap ditanam untuk
menghijaukan kembali daerah purnatambang seluas empat
hektar itu.
Penghijauan Bukit Inalahi adalah bagian dari program
revegetasi PT Vale sepanjang 2011. Inilah salah satu bentuk
pengelolaan lahan purnatambang agar bisa kembali
mendekati kondisi semula dan sesuai peruntukannya.
Lahan seluas 137 hektar telah direhabilitasi pada 2011.
Tahapan rehabilitasi lahan meliputi pembentukan kontur
sesuai standar lereng lahan rehabilitasi, pengembalian tanah
pucuk (top soil), pengendalian erosi, pembangunan drainase,
pembangunan jalan revegetasi, penghijauan, pemeliharaan
tanaman, dan pemantauan keberhasilan.
Saat lahan ditata, seluruh bongkahan batu ditimbun
sedalam satu meter. Pengendalian erosi dilakukan dengan
membangun lereng balik (back-slope), saluran air, kolam
pengendapan, tanggul pengelak, dan lain-lain. Setelah
tahapan penataan lahan selesai dilakukan, top soil atau
tanah pucuk ditebarkan ke seluruh lahan dengan ketebalan
antara 20-30 cm. Tahap akhir penyiapan lahan adalah
penggemburan lahan.
Tahapan rehabilitasi selanjutnya adalah penanaman tanaman
penutup tanah dan pohon-pohon jenis perintis. Lahan yang
telah digemburkan ditaburi kompos sebanyak 25-30 ton/
hektar guna memperbaiki sifat fisik dan kimia tanah agar
sesuai dengan pertumbuhan tanaman penutup.
Benih tanaman penutup, yang merupakan campuran jenis
rumput-rumputan dan kacang-kacangan, ditanam dengan
cara disebar di atas tanah. Sementara jenis pohon perintis
yang ditanam seperti sengon, johar, eukaliptus, dan akasia.
Pada satu hektar lahan rata-rata terdapat 400 pohon. Dalam

S PHERE
satu area ditanami lebih dari satu jenis tanaman untuk
memperkaya biodiversitas lahan, meningkatkan ketahanan
pohon dari serangan hama penyakit, dan menyediakan
keragaman tempat hidup satwa.
Pemeliharaan tanaman dilakukan hingga tanaman berumur
satu setengah tahun atau hingga dapat tumbuh alami secara
berkelanjutan. Sebelum tanaman bisa “mandiri”, kegiatan
pemeliharaan, seperti pembersihan gulma, pemberantasan
hama penyakit, dan pemupukan ulang, terus dilakukan.
Sedangkan kendala terbesar yang ditemui sepanjang 2011
adalah curah hujan yang tinggi. Lahan menjadi sangat basah,
bahkan di beberapa lokasi bulldozer terbenam, sehingga
menyulitkan penataan. Akibatnya, penataan lahan terlambat
dan tidak bisa segera ditanami.
Meski demikian, rehabilitasi lahan bukannya tanpa kendala.
“Ada area pasca-tambang yang tidak bisa ditimbun kembali
karena berbentuk puncak-puncak batu cadas yang tidak
terdapat tanah sebagai media tumbuh tanaman. Kondisi
tanah yang miskin unsur hara dan kandungan besi yang
tinggi sering menyebabkan tanaman tumbuh kerdil. Selain
itu, ada hama penyakit yang kerap menyerang,” jelas Aris
Ambodo, Manager Mine Rehabilitation PT Vale.
Tanaman Lokal
Pada 2005, misalnya, sempat terjadi serangan hama terbesar
berupa wabah karat puru (gall rust). Wabah ini menjangkiti
pohon-pohon trembesi yang berujung pada kegagalan 800
hektar area rehabilitasi. Maka PT Vale kembali menanam jenis
pohon yang berbeda untuk mengurangi serangan jamur
yang sama.
Program yang menarik adalah penanaman berbagai jenis
tanaman lokal yang telah dilakukan sejak 2007. Tanaman
lokal ditancapkan di bawah pohon perintis pada lahan
rehabilitasi yang telah berumur empat tahun ke atas.
Tanaman lokal memerlukan naungan dari tanaman perintis
yang rimbun agar dapat berkembang. Jenis tanaman lokal
itu seperti bintangur (Calophyllum inophyllum), betao
(Callophyllum sp.), belulang (Stemonurus celebicus), jambujambu (Syzygium sp.), kayu hitam (Diospyros celebica), meranti
(Shorea sp.), ramin (Gonystylus bancanus), dan kayu bitti (Vitex
Coffasus).
Pada 2012, PT Vale tetap menjaga maksimum luas bukaan
lahan untuk penambangan pada batas 1.100 hektar demi
menjaga kondisi lingkungan. Total area yang direncanakan
direklamasi pada 2012 seluas 115 hektar. PT Vale juga
berkomitmen melaksanakan progressive rehabilitation demi
mengurangi dampak erosi sesegera mungkin. []

Mined Areas
Returned to Green
Land rehabilitation is inseparable from
PT Vale’s operations.
Sacks of fertilizer were lined up in the Bukit Inalahi area.
Cover crop and pioneer plants were ready for planting to revegetate the four-hectare area which had been subjected to
mining activities.
The restoration of Bukit Inalahi is part of PT Vale’s revegetation program for 2011. It is a form of managing postmining land, and an effort to restore the land, as closely as
possible, to its original state and function.
An area measuring 137 hectares was rehabilitated in 2011.
This consisted of land reclamation, or the reshaping of terrain
into a standard rehabilitation-ready slope; restoration of
top soil; erosion control; building drainage systems; laying
down paths for re-vegetation; greening; maintenance of
vegetation; and monitoring results.
When an area is to be restructured, rocks are first buried at a
depth of one meter. Erosion control is done by creating back
slopes, water channels, sedimentation ponds, embankments,
etc. The next stage, after the land has been restructured,
involves the distribution of top soil at a thickness of 20 to 30
cm. The last stage is the tilling of land.
The next stage of rehabilitation involves the planting of cover
crop and trees categorized as pioneer plants. Tilled land is
treated with compost at a rate of 25-30 tons per hectare to
improve the soil’s physical and chemical characteristics and
match them with the requirements of the cover crop.
Seeds of cover crop, which consist of a mix of grasses
and legumes, are sown by way of scattering them on the
earth. Pioneer plants that are used include sengon, johar,
eucalyptus and acasia trees. On average, a plot measuring
one hectare contains 400 trees. The type of vegetation grown
in a plot is always mixed to increase the area’s biodiversity,
improve plant resistance against pests and diseases, and
provide diverse habitats for fauna.
The vegetation is tended until it is aged 1.5 years, or until
it can grow naturally in a sustained manner. Before the
vegetation can be left to grow independently, continuous
maintenance is carried out; this includes weeding,
eradication of pests and diseases, and reapplication of
fertilizer.

Despite these efforts, land rehabilitation is not without its
difficulties. “There are post-mining areas that cannot be
reinstated because they consist of rocky outcrops containing
no soil, which is essential to support plant growth. Soil that is
poor in nutrients and high in iron often causes plants to grow
stunted. Also, they are vulnerable to pests and diseases,” said
Aris Ambodo, Manager for Mine Rehabilitation.
In 2005, for instance, crops of trembesi trees were attacked
by a severe case of gall rust, wiping out 800 hectares of
rehabilitated land. After that, PT Vale replanted the area with
different types of trees to reduce the chances of the crop
being attacked by the same fungus.
The biggest obstacle for rehabilitation efforts in 2011 was
the presence of high levels of rainfall. Heavy rains soaked the
earth in some locations even causing bulldozers to become
stuck and caused delays in land restructuring activities; as
a result, the planting of re-vegetation crops also had to be
delayed.
Local Vegetation
One interesting program carried out since 2007 is the
planting of a variety of local vegetation. In this program, local
plants are placed under pioneer plants in rehabilitated areas
aged four years and older.
Local plants require shade from lush pioneer plants to
be able to grow. Among these local plants are bintangur
(Calophyllum inophyllum), betao (Callophyllum sp.), belulang
(Stemonurus celebicus), jambu-jambu (Syzygium sp.), kayu
hitam (Diospyros celebica), meranti (Shorea sp.), ramin
(Gonystylus bancanus) and kayu bitti (Vitex Coffasus).
In 2012, PT Vale will keep the area cleared for mining at
a maximum of 1,100 hectares to preserve environmental
conditions. The total area planned for reclamation in 2012 is
115 hectares. Vale Indonesia is also committed to carrying
out progressive rehabilitation as soon as possible to reduce
the impact of erosion. []

Perlawanan Rakyat Luwu ke-66, manajemen PT Vale bersama
empat pemerintah kabupaten di Luwu Raya (Luwu Timur,
Luwu Utara, Luwu, dan Palopo) menggelar pesta rakyat
pada 20-22 Januari 2012. Acara, yang dipusatkan di Malili
dan Mangkutana di mana penyelenggaraannya didukung
oleh manajemen PT Vale, berupa seminar dan bedah buku
“Budaya Tana Luwu”, tausiyah ustadz Maulana, tarik tambang,
pawai lampion, konser grup Mahadewi, dan ditutup dengan
upacara bendera.
Chief Operating Officer (COO) PT Vale Josimar Pires mengaku
terkesima melihat antusiasme masyarakat Luwu dalam
perhelatan ini. “Kegiatan ini merupakan tradisi yang sangat
bagus. Acara seperti ini harus selalu ada,” kata Josimar,
yang bersama manajemen PT Vale sempat bertanding tarik
tambang melawan tim Pemkab Luwu Timur, yang dimotori
Bupati Andi Hatta Marakarma.
Sedangkan Presiden Direktur & CEO PT Vale Nico
Kanter berpendapat, pesta rakyat merupakan media
silaturahmi antara manajemen dan masyarakat, sekaligus
membangkitkan semangat masyarakat. “Untuk itu, PT Vale
yang beroperasi di wilayah Luwu akan mendukung kegiatan
masyarakat seperti ini,” ujar Nico Kanter.
Dalam acara bedah buku dan dialog budaya Tana Luwu,
hadir narasumber Sirtjof Koolhof, pengamat budaya,
serta sejarawan Profesor Andi Ima Kesuma dan Edward
Poelinggomang. “Kegiatan seperti ini membuka kembali
mata masyarakat Luwu tentang pentingnya melihat sejarah
dan menghargai budaya lokal kita,” kata Bupati Luwu Timur
Andi Hatta Marakarma.
Luwu Maju Pesat
Pada malam puncak acara, hadir tamu kehormatan, yakni
Gubernur Sulawesi Selatan Syahrul Yasin Limpo beserta
perwakilan Muspida Sulawesi Selatan. Gubernur juga
memberikan ucapan selamat dan sambutan kepada
masyarakat Luwu.
“Luwu merupakan wilayah di Sulawesi Selatan yang
sangat pesat kemajuannya. Ekonomi dan pertaniannya
maju. Semoga hal ini dapat terus dipertahankan seluruh
masyarakatnya,” ujar Gubernur. Dia juga mengingatkan agar
seluruh masyarakat Luwu senantiasa menjalankan kearifan
lokal berupa toleransi dan semangat gotong royong.
Pesta semakin meriah dengan hiburan dari pop star
Mahadewi, yang berhasil menggoyang ribuan penonton
yang memadati Lapangan Andi Nyiwi. Pada penutup
rangkaian acara, digelar upacara bendera sebagai
penghormatan mayarakat Luwu kepada para pahlawan di
masa revolusi kemerdekaan. []

Luwu Festival, Our Festival
From spiritual talks and book reviews to a Mahadewi concert.
In commemoration of the 744th Anniversary of Tana Luwu
and the 66th Luwu People’s Resistance Day, PT Vale’s
management alongside authorities from four regencies in
Luwu Raya (East Luwu, North Luwu, Luwu and Palopo) held
a folk festival on 20-22 January 2012. The celebrations,
held in Malili and Mangkutana and supported by PT Vale’s
management, consisted of a seminar and book review of “The
Culture of Tana Luwu” (Budaya Tana Luwu), spiritual advice
from Ustadz Maulana, a game of tug-of-war, a lantern parade,
a concert by the Mahadewi group, finally, a flag ceremony.
PT Vale’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) Josimar Pires said he
was impressed by the enthusiasm of the Luwu community
during the festival. “This activity is a very good tradition.
These events must always be held,” said Josimar, who,
alongside PT Vale management staff, participated in the tugof-war against a team of East Luwu government officials led
by Regent Andi Hatta Marakarma.
The book review and Tana Luwu cultural dialogue was
attended by cultural observer Sirtjof Koolhof and historians
Professor Andi Ima Kesuma and Edward Poelinggomang.
“Events like these are an eye-opener for the Luwu community
as they make people understand the importance of looking
back at history and appreciating our local culture,” said East
Luwu Regent Andi Hatta Marakarma.
PT Vale’s President Director and CEO Nico Kanter said the folk
festival was an ideal place for company management staff
and community members to meet, and a good way of raising
people’s spirits. “For this reason, PT Vale, which operates in
the Luwu region, will support community activities like this,”
said Nico Kanter.
Luwu Developing Rapidly
The evening was highlighted by the arrival of the guest of
honor, South Sulawesi Governor Syahrul Yasin Limpo and
representatives from South Sulawesi’s provincial council of
leaders. The Governor congratulated the Luwu community
and gave a speech.
“Luwu is a region in South Sulawesi that is developing
rapidly; its economy and agriculture have developed well. I
hope its community can keep this up,” said the Governor. He
reminded the community to hold fast to the local wisdom of
tolerance and mutual cooperation.
Pop stars Mahadewi rocked the festival’s audience that
evening, performing on the grounds of Lapangan Andi Nyiwi.
The day ended with a flag ceremony as the community’s sign
of respect for the country’s heroes who lost their lives in the
revolution for independence. []

Mereka yang Berada
di Saluran-saluran Panas
Tetap konsentrasi di tengah suhu 1.300 derajat celsius.
Profesi mereka merupakan bagian dari inti produksi nikel PT
Vale. Mereka bekerja di antara tungku-tungku panas Process
Plant, yang membutuhkan konsentrasi dan disiplin kerja
tinggi. Mereka adalah para tapper, skimmer, dan pengemudi
haul master.
Tapper bertugas menjaga nickel matte yang masih berbentuk
cairan panas agar tidak tersumbat di saluran pemisah dengan
saluran slag. Bila saluran tersumbat, nickel matte dan slag
bisa tercampur. Akibatnya, kualitas dan kuantitas nickel matte
yang dihasilkan turun.
berkoordinasi dengan rekan kerjanya yang memasang selang
oksigen di pangkal besi dan menunggu aba-aba. “Kalau
sudah ada oksigen keluar dari rongga besi, harus cepat
didorong dan diputar-putar. Kalau terlambat bisa tersumbat,”
ujarnya.
Tugas skimmer hampir sama, hanya saja lebih berfokus pada
aliran saluran slag. Terakhir, yang tak kalah penting, adalah
pengemudi haul master, truk raksasa pengangkut slag
menuju tempat penampungan. Inilah kisah mereka selama
bekerja di antara hawa panas.
Selain berjibaku dengan hawa panas, Batholomeus harus
lihai mengawasi percikan api yang kerap keluar dari saluran.
Bila percikan api itu mengenai tangan, kulit bisa berlubang
dan membekas seperti gigitan ular. Meski menggunakan
aluminized clothing, Batholomeus kadang masih terkena
percikan api itu. “Kalau sudah begitu, berarti perlu lebih
waspada. Inilah pekerjaan saya,” ujarnya bangga.
Batholomeus Massenga (35), Tapper
Batholomeus telah menjalani profesinya sejak tujuh
tahun lalu. Dia bekerja di depan material bersuhu 1.300
derajat celsius selama delapan jam sehari. Dia harus lihai
menggunakan besi berongga berukuran empat meter ke
dalam mulut saluran. Dengan sigap dia harus senantiasa

Erwin Arya masih mengenakan aluminized clothing ketika
Halo Vale hendak mewawancarainya. Dia memperkenalkan
diri, kemudian membuka “baju astronotnya” itu. Kami
melihat bajunya basah-kuyup karena keringat. Dia hanya
tersenyum melihat wajah kami yang tercengang. “Profesi ini
seperti petinju. Mulai ronde pertama sampai selesai, terus
berkeringat. Pakaian tak pernah kering,” kata dia.
Tak heran, tambah dia, ketika pulang kerja dengan
menggunakan bus karyawan, tak ada orang yang mau
mendekatinya. “Karena pasti bau,” ujar Erwin terkekeh.
Dia pun bekerja satu shift selama delapan jam per hari.
Bila masuk pagi, istrinya akan bangun lebih awal dan
membuatkan sarapan atau membungkuskan bekal.

PROFIL
Seorang skimmer seperti Erwin bertugas melancarkan saluran
slag dengan tongkat besi. Saluran ini bersebelahan beberapa
inci dari saluran nickel matte. Dalam beberapa peristiwa,
aliran nickel matte keluar ke jalur slag, begitu pula sebaliknya.
Jika demikian, semua tim akan bergerak. Saluran akan
ditutup dan hal itu membutuhkan banyak tenaga.
Aliran slag mengalir seperti lahar gunung berapi. Pelan
namun membahayakan. Suhu slag lebih tinggi daripada
nickel matte, yakni mencapai 1.500 derajat Celsius. Panas
seperti itu bisa mencairkan tongkat besi yang digunakan
Erwin dalam hitungan detik.
Sebagai perbandingan, bila menyentuh api kompor, kulit
yang terkena hanya merah atau paling banter melepuh.
“Kalau slag dan nickel matte terkena jari, pasti langsung
meleleh,” ujar dia. Mengingat tingginya risiko kerja yang
dihadapi, membuat Erwin punya kriteria tersendiri atas apa
yang dimaksud dengan situasi aman: “Kalau saya sudah di
rumah dan ganti baju,” katanya tertawa.

Muhammad Nasyaruddin (36), operator
Haul Master
Pria yang telah bekerja sejak 2002 ini adalah pengemudi truk

dibuang.
Pekerjaan ini juga tidak mudah. Pasalnya, Muhammad harus
lihai mengoperasilan haul master yang memiliki dua jenis
kemudi sekaligus, kemudi kendaraan dan kemudi untuk
mengangkat dan menurunkan bak slag. Setelah itu, dia
membawa truk melalui jalanan berbatu atau berlumpur
sepanjang 1,5 kilometer menuju tempat penampungan slag.
“Sebelum menjadi pengemudi haul master, seseorang perlu
mengenal lapangan selama tiga bulan. Sebab kalau tidak ada
orientasi bisa terjadi insiden, seperti mangkuk slag tumpah,”
ungkap dia.
Selain konsentrasi, fisik prima adalah kriteria wajib yang perlu
dipenuhi operator “truk mangkuk” ini. Betapa tidak. Selama
delapan jam per hari, si operator bisa bolak-balik dari furnace
ke slag dump dengan membawa 17 “mangkuk” berisi slag.
Tantangan terberat adalah ketika bekerja malam hari dan
kabut sedang turun. “Lampu haul master kadang nggak bisa
menembus kabut. Jadi kalau masuk malam, pikiran dan fisik
perlu lebih baik,” ujar dia. []

Those Working in the Heat
Maintaining concentration at temperatures
of 1,300 degrees Celsius.
Their job lies at the heart of PT Vale’s nickel production.
Working among scorching hot furnaces of the Process Plant,
they need the most concentration and discipline when it
comes to getting the job done. They are the company’s
furnace tappers, skimmers and Haul Master truck operators.
A tapper’s job is to ensure that nickel matte in its hot liquid
form does not clog up the dividing channel separating it
from the slag flow. If the channel is blocked, nickel matte
will mix with the slag, thus reducing the quality of the nickel
matte produced.
A skimmer has a similar job, but focuses more on the flow
in the slag channel. Finally, the operator of a haul master
oversized truck is tasked with transporting the slag to a
holding area. This is a story of those who spend their working
hours constantly in the heat.
Batholomeus Massenga (35), Tapper
Batholomeus started doing his job seven years ago. He works
in front of materials with temperatures of 1,300 degrees
Celsius, eight hours a day. He must be skilled at using the
hollow iron structure that has a four-meter channel at its
opening. His work involves coordination with a colleague
who fixes an oxygen tube at the foot of the iron cavity then
waits for his signal. “If oxygen starts coming out of the cavity,
it must be pushed and turned around. If we are late to do
this, it could get blocked,” he said.
Apart from having to deal with high temperatures,
Batholomeus must also be wary of fire sparks that often
escape the channel. Sparks that land on the skin leave
pockmarks, similar to marks caused by a snake bite. Although
Batholomeus wears aluminized clothing, the sparks
occasionally still get to him. “When that happens, it means I
need to be more cautious. This is my job,” he said proudly.
Erwin Arya Samad (42), Skimmer
Erwin Arya was still in his aluminized clothing when Halo
Vale interviewed him. He introduced himself then took off
his “astronaut gear”. His clothes were soaked in sweat. He
smiled as he watched us recoil from the shock. “This job is
like a boxer’s. From the first round to the end, I am constantly
sweating. My clothes are never dry,” he said.
Not surprisingly, he said, when he takes the employees’ bus
home, nobody wants to sit next to him. “Because I must really
stink,” Erwin said with a chuckle. He works on eight-hour
shifts. If he has the morning shift, his wife gets up early and
makes him breakfast or packs him a meal.
A skimmer like Erwin has the job to smooth the slag channel
using an iron bar. This channel is only a few inches away
from the nickel matte channel. In a few instances, the nickel
matte has escaped into the slag flow, and vice versa; when
this happens, the whole team must take action because all
channels must be shut, and this requires a lot of manpower.

Slag flows like lava from a volcano: it is slow and intimidating.
The temperature of slag is higher than of nickel matte –
reaching 1,500 degrees Celsius. In just a few seconds such
temperatures can melt an iron bar, such as the one used by
Erwin.
As comparison, fire from a stove that comes into contact with
skin will cause the skin to become red or, at the most, blister.
“If slag and nickel matte touches your finger, it will melt
straight away,” he said. Because of the extremely risky nature
of his job, Erwin has his own criteria of a safe situation: “It is
when I am at home and have changed my clothes,” he said
with a laugh.
Muhammad Nasyaruddin (36), operator
Haul Master
Muhammad has been on the job since 2002, driving a truck
that transports and removes 3 tons of hot lava from the
furnace.
Muhammad Nasyaruddin
The job is not an easy one. Muhammad must operate the
haul master’s two types of controls simultaneously: one is
the steering wheel to drive the vehicle; the other is to raise
and lower the slag tray. Afterwards, he drives the truck over
a 1.5-kilometer muddy or rocky track to the slag dump, or
holding area.
“Before becoming a haul master operator, you need to
learn the ropes for three months. If you don’t go through
an orientation process, accidents could easily happen, like
having the slag spill out the bucket,” he said.
Apart from being able to concentrate, a good physique is a
requisite for an operator of a “bucket truck”. For eight hours
a day, the operator shuttles between the furnace and slag
dump to transport up to 17 truck-buckets of slag.
The biggest challenge is working at night in foggy
conditions. “Sometimes the haul master’s headlights cannot
penetrate the fog because it is too thick. So if you are on a
night shift, your mind and body need to be even sharper,” he
said. []

“Sekolah” untuk Orangtua
Di sinilah orangtua bisa saling berbagi pengalaman dan menuntut ilmu.
Ada sekolah untuk semua profesi. Dokter, insinyur, tentara,
perancang mode, koki, seluruh ilmunya bisa dipelajari di
sekolah khusus. Tapi bagaimana dengan sekolah bagi para
orangtua?
Menjadi orangtua yang baik tentu bukan perkara mudah.
Perlu wawasan, keahlian, dan dedikasi yang tulus.
Ketidaktahuan dan minimnya pengalaman bisa menjadi
pangkal pola didik negatif dan dapat berujung pada karakter
anak yang menyimpang.
Berbagi pengalaman dengan sesama orangtua merupakan
salah satu cara termudah—dan menyenangkan—untuk
menggali ilmu seputar pengasuhan anak. Itulah yang
dilakukan Hening, Nadia, Penny, Mulyana, Mirna, Indri, dan
Sierra.
Semua berawal dari pertemanan yang memberi mereka
banyak kesempatan untuk berkumpul dan mencurahkan
isi hati. Salah satunya soal pendidikan anak. Keprihatinan
mereka pun sama. “Misalnya, soal sopan-santun dalam
berkomunikasi dengan anak sebagai bagian dari cara
mendidik anak. Memberi label ‘nakal’ kepada anak dalam
ucapan sehari-hari masih sering kami dengar,” kata Hening
Sarwasri.
Dari ngobrol-ngobrol itulah mereka lantas mendirikan Smart
Parenting Club (SPC), bertepatan dengan Hari Ibu 2009. SPC
menjadi wadah bagi orangtua yang peduli terhadap masa
depan anak.
Visi mereka: Membentuk peradaban yang bermartabat dan
berhati nurani dimulai dari lini terkecil dalam masyarakat,
yaitu keluarga. Melalui miniatur “sekolah” untuk orangtua
inilah, mereka mulai merintis mimpi.
62
Ha l o Va l e I Ed isi M ei 2012
Terus Belajar
“Bagi para orangtua baru, tentu banyak yang perlu dipelajari.
Kami prihatin tapi tidak pernah menyalahkan orangtua yang
mendisiplinkan anak dengan cara mencubit, menjewer,
atau menyeret anak yang merengek karena minta dibelikan
jajanan di pasar. Semua itu karena ketidaktahuan,” tambah
Hening, Ketua SPC. Maka orangtua baru dengan anak bayi
dan balita menjadi sasaran utama SPC.
Parenting class akan digiatkan SPC sepanjang tahun ini. Di
kelas kecil itu, setiap orangtua dapat berbagi pengalaman
dan melontarkan permasalahan yang sedang dihadapi
seputar anak. Lalu mereka mencoba mencari solusinya.
“Bahkan pernah beberapa orangtua mengetuk pintu
rumah kami untuk berbagi keluh-kesah. Tentu kami akan
mendengar. Dan jika bisa, kami memberikan saran dari
pengalaman kami sesama orangtua,” kata Nadia Mulkin,
Sekretaris SPC.
Selain parenting class, SPC, yang kini punya 20 anggota aktif,
juga mengadakan ajang yang lebih besar. Mereka pernah
menggelar workshop bertajuk “Bunda Manajer Keluarga”
pada Maret 2011 lalu, dan dihadiri tidak kurang dari 400 ibu.
Acara tersebut mendatangkan Irawati Istadi, penulis bukubuku best seller seputar pendidikan anak dan pengelolaan
keluarga. “Itu menjadi bukti bahwa keinginan para orangtua
untuk menggali ilmu besar. Dan kami berharap bisa menjadi
wadah bagi mereka yang ingin terus belajar,” kata Mirna
Haerani, Humas SPC.
KO MUNITAS
Tidak ingin berhenti menyebarkan visi, SPC juga aktif mengisi
berbagai ajang yang masih berkaitan dengan pendidikan
anak. Pengurus SPC pernah menjadi motivator siswa-siswi
SMP menjelang Ujian Akhir Nasional, menjadi pembicara dan
moderator dalam berbagai seminar.
Kerja sama dengan pemerintah daerah dan BKKBN tingkat
provinsi juga pernah dijalankan agar semakin banyak
orangtua yang tertular virus better parenting. “Kami juga
masih terus belajar. Salah satunya dengan menjadi peserta
workshop atau seminar orangtua. Selesai workshop, ilmu yang
didapat dibagikan kepada anggota SPC yang lain,” kata Penny
Herawaty, Bendahara SPC.
Merangkul Keluarga
Apa mimpi SPC selanjutnya? “Kami tidak hanya berfokus
pada internal komunitas ini. Sebaliknya, yang paling penting
bagi kami adalah melihat perubahan positif pada pendidikan
dan pola asuh anak di masyarakat sekitar kami,” kata Hening.
Menjadi agen perubahan demi mewujudkan keluargakeluarga cerdas merupakan misi mulia yang diemban SPC.
Menurut SPC, belajar menjadi orangtua cerdas tidak
bisa seperti membalikkan telapak tangan. “Bukan hanya
mengadakan seminar atau workshop satu kali, lalu tidak ada
kelanjutannya. Justru yang penting adalah follow up. Kalau
tidak ada, pasti lupa ilmu yang didapat saat seminar,” ujar
Mulyana Mulkin, Seksi Program SPC.
Dan orangtua bukan hanya ibu. Ayah punya peran besar
untuk mewujudkan keluarga cerdas. “Selama ini baru ibu-ibu
yang mengikuti kegiatan kami. SPC berharap para ayah juga
tertarik dengan kegiatan kami. Kami sedang merancang
kegiatan yang menarik bagi ibu, ayah, dan anak sehingga
mereka bisa datang sebagai keluarga yang utuh. Cerdasnya
juga utuh,” pungkas Hening.

COMM U N I T I ES
“Schooling” for Parents
A place where parents can share their experience and gain knowledge.
For all professions there is a school. Doctors, engineers,
soldiers, fashion designers, chefs all their knowledge can be
gained in specialized schools. But what about a school for
parents?
Being a parent is not an easy task. Vision, expertise and
genuine dedication are needed. Ignorance and lack of
experience can initiate negative upbringing, resulting in the
child’s deviant character.
Sharing experiences with other parents is one of the easiest
and most fun ways to learn about parenting. That is what
Hening, Nadia, Penny, Mulyana, Mirna, Indri and Sierra have
done.
It all started with a friendship that provided a chance for
them to gather and confide in each other. One topic was
child education, and they all shared similar concerns. “For
instance, to be polite when communicating to our children
is part of their education. Labeling children ‘naughty’ is
something we hear too often in daily conversations,” said
Hening Sarwasri.
It was during these casual gatherings that the friends
decided to establish the Smart Parenting Club (SPC),
launching it officially on Mother’s Day of 2009. SPC became a
venue for parents concerned for their children’s future.
Their vision was to create a civilization possessing dignity and
a conscience, starting with the smallest unit in community,
which was the family. Through this miniature “school” they
embarked on achieving their goal.
64
Ha l o Va l e I Ed isi M ei 2012
Continuing to Learn
“For new parents there are, of course, much to learn. We are
concerned about, but do not blame, parents who discipline
their children by pinching, ear-tugging or by dragging them
away when the children whine for treats at a shop. It is all
caused by ignorance,” added Hening, the chairperson of
SPC. It is for this reason that SPC focuses its activities on new
parents of babies and under-five-year olds.
This year, SPC will invigorate its parenting classes. In these
small classes, parents can share their experiences and childrelated problems. They can then seek a solution. “In fact we
have had some parents knock on our door to confide in us.
Of course we will listen to them; and if possible, we will give
them suggestions based on our own experiences as parents,”
said SPC Secretary Nadia Mulkin.
Apart from parenting classes, SPC, which currently has 20
active members, conducts activities on a larger scale. The
group hosted a workshop with the theme “Mothers as Family
Managers” in March 2011, attended by about 400 mothers.
Guest speaker Irawati Istadi, author of a bestseller on child
education and household management, was present at the
event. “It is proof that parents have a great desire to seek
knowledge. And we hope to facilitate those who want to
keep learning,” said Mirna Haerani, the public relations officer
of SPC.
CO MM UNITIES
Beyond spreading its vision, SPC has also been involved in
various activities relating to child education. SPC executives
were motivators of junior high school students embarking
on their National Exams and they acted as speakers and
moderators in many seminars.
The organization has also cooperated with the local
government and the provincial office of the National Family
Planning Board (BKKBN) in its efforts to promote better
parenting among parents. “We, too, are still learning. One way
is to participate in workshops or parenting seminars. After
attending those workshops, we share our knowledge with
other members of SPC,” said SPC Treasurer Penny Hera Waty.
waty.
Bringing Family Together
What is SPC’s next goal? “We do not want to focus only on
the internal side of our community. Instead, what is most
important to us is to be able to see a positive change in the
education and upbringing of children in the communities
around us,” said Hening. Being an agent of change for the
purpose of creating smart families is SPC’s noble mission.
According to SPC, learning to be a smart parent cannot be
achieved overnight. “Not through attending a seminar or
workshop just once without following up afterwards. In fact,
the most important thing is follow-up, otherwise, knowledge
gained through the seminar will just be forgotten,” said
Mulyana Mulkin from SPC’s Program Division.
And mothers are not the only parents. Fathers have a big
role in creating smart families. “So far, our activities have only
been attended by mothers. SPC hopes that fathers will also
be interested in our activities. We are currently designing
programs that will be attractive to mothers, fathers and
children so they can attend as a whole family. They will also
become wholly smart,” said Hening.

Istilah carpal tunnel syndrome atau musculoskeletal disorders
mungkin asing di telinga kita. Namun jika istilah itu
diterjemahkan sebagai rasa kaku di pergelangan tangan
dan kelainan otot, pasti sudah sering kita dengar, bahkan
mungkin kita alami.
Bukan hanya itu. Keluhan lain seperti nyeri pinggang dan
kelelahan tak pelak akrab dalam keseharian. Keluhan-keluhan
tersebut erat kaitannya dengan lingkungan kerja.
Ergonomi, ilmu yang mempelajari manusia di lingkungan
kerja, perlu diterapkan untuk mengurangi stres dan
menghindari cedera serta berbagai gangguan terkait
penggunaan otot berlebih, postur tubuh yang buruk, serta
pekerjaan berulang. Caranya dengan menata mekanisme
kerja, ruang kerja, dan perangkat penunjang pekerjaan.
Dengan penerapan ergonomi yang baik, tugas dan aktivitas
disesuaikan dengan keterbatasan karyawan, sekaligus
mengoptimalkan kemampuan pekerja.
Ergonomi dan K3 (keselamatan dan kesehatan kerja) tak
terpisahkan. Keduanya mengarah pada peningkatan kualitas
kehidupan kerja (quality of working life), yang berujung
pada produktivitas dan kualitas kerja. Bahkan ada ungkapan
bahwa “without ergonomics, safety management is not
enough”. Berikut beberapa prinsip ergonomi sederhana di
lingkungan kerja yang dapat Anda terapkan.

Atur meja kerja berdasarkan frekuensi penggunaan perangkat kerja. Perangkat yang paling sering digunakan seperti mouse dan telepon ditempatkan di posisi yang paling mudah dijangkau.
Atur pencahayaan ruang kerja. Hindari lampu yang menyorot langsung ke monitor karena akan memunculkan pantulan di layar.
Jangan menggunakan gagang telepon dengan menjepitnya di antara telinga dan pundak. Jika
aktivitas menelepon relatif sering dilakukan,
gunakan perangkat handsfree, sehingga mengurangi
postur yang tidak normal pada leher.
Tempatkan mesin fotokopi di ruangan dengan
ventilasi baik, karena cahaya yang terpancar dari
mesin dapat menimbulkan ozon dalam ruangan.
Ozon dapat menimbulkan iritasi mata, tenggorokan,
dan berbahaya jika terhirup. Selain ozon, limbah
mesin fotokopi lain seperti toner tinta dan serbuk
halus kertas juga tidak baik bagi pernapasan.

Sebaiknya pilih kursi yang dapat diatur ketinggian alas duduknya dan memiliki penyangga punggung.
Aturlah kursi sehingga paha dalam posisi horizontal dan punggung bagian bawah tertopang. Tambahkan bantal di bagian bawah sandaran punggung bila perlu.
Gunakan kursi dengan penyangga tangan sebagai penopang saat menggunakan komputer.
Gunakan sandaran telapak kaki jika merasa kurang nyaman dengan pijakan Anda.
Ubahlah posisi duduk secara teratur selama bekerja, karena duduk dalam posisi tetap dalam jangka lama akan mempercepat risiko nyeri pinggang.
Posisikan komputer seperti ilustrasi [ii].
Atur posisi kibor agar lengan Anda dalam posisi rileks, dengan lengan bawah pada posisi horizontal.
Pergelangan tangan harus lurus.
Ketika mengetik dan menggerakkan mouse, lengan harus ikut bergeser sehingga jari tidak dipaksa meraih tombol-
tombol kibor.
Atur monitor sehingga mata Anda kira-kira setinggi tepi atas layar. Monitor yang terlalu rendah atau terlalu tinggi akan menyebabkan leher dan pundak nyeri jika bekerja dalam waktu lama.
Jarak Anda dan monitor berkisar 45-60 cm. Monitor yang terlalu dekat mengakibatkan mata cepat lelah.
Posisikan monitor tepat lurus di depan Anda, jangan paksa kepala menoleh untuk melihat layar.

ERGONOMIC S
Create More Comfortable
Work Spaces
The layout of the work space has a significant
impact on work comfort.
The terms “carpal tunnel syndrome” or “musculoskeletal
disorders” may seem foreign to our ears. Literally translated,
though, it refers to stiffness in the wrists and disorders to the
muscles, which are all conditions we often hear, or indeed,
suffer ourselves.
But that is not all. Other ailments such as lower back pains
and exhaustion are things that we hear of everyday. These
complaints are closely related to the workplace environment.
Ergonomics, the study of humans in the workplace, needs
to be applied to reduce stress and prevent injury as well as
other disorders that may result from the overuse of certain
muscles, poor body posture and repetitive actions. The
way to do this is by arranging the method of the work itself
and the mechanisms of work spaces and their supporting
facilities. By applying sound ergonomic principles, tasks and
activities can be adjusted to take into account employees’
limitations and at the same time optimize their potential
capabilities.
Ergonomics and work health and safety (K3) principles are
inseparable. Both aim to increase the quality of working life
which, in turn, will result in better productivity and increased
work quality. There is in fact a saying: “Without ergonomics,
safety management is not enough”. Below are a few simple
ergonomic principles that can be applied to your work
environment

Arrange your desk based on the frequency you use
your work equipment. Place items that are most
often used, such as computer mouse and telephone,
in positions that are easy to reach.
Adjust lighting in your work space. Avoid shining
a light directly onto your computer monitor as this
will reflect glare
Do not use your telephone handset by clasping it
between your ear and shoulder. If you use the phone
often, use a hands free set to avoid subjecting your
neck to an abnormal posture.
Place photocopiers in a room with good ventilation
because the bright light from the machine causes
the release of ozone into the room. Ozone causes eye
and throat irritation, and is harmful when inhaled.
Apart from ozone, other photocopier waste, such as
ink toners and fine paper dust, can also be harmful to
the respiratory system.

* ) Maintain a steady temperature of 21 degree Celsius and humidity level of 40% to 60% in the room to prevent the development of bacteria, viruses and fungus.

If possible, choose a height-adjustable chair with back support.
Adjust your chair so your thighs are positioned horizontally and your lower back is supported. Place a cushion on the lower part of the back rest if necessary.
Use a chair with armrests as support when using the computer.
Use a footstool if you feel uncomfortable with your footing.
Change your seating position regularly during the course of your work because sitting in the same position for extended periods of time increases the risk of lower back pain.
Position your chair as shown in the illustration [ii].
Position the computer keyboard so your arms are in a relaxed position, with the lower arm resting horizontally.
Your wrists must be straight.
Make sure when typing on the keyboard and moving your mouse, your arm moves freely as well so your fingers are not forced to reach out to the keypads.
Position your monitor so your eyesight more or less rests on the top of the screen. A monitor that is too low or too high causes strain on your neck and shoulders if you work over a long period of time.
Make sure there is a distance of 45 to 60 cm between you and the computer monitor. A monitor that is too close causes eye fatigue.
Position the monitor so it is directly in front of you. Your head should not be required to turn to view the screen.
