Train is a type of transportation that can have a negative impact in the form of air pollution due to noise. Noise is one factor in relation to physiological, psychological, pathological disorders and communication health disorders. The disturbance is very likely to occur in people who live around the railway. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of noise from railway toward on the listening function of elementary school students who attend school on the outskirts of railroad tracks. Method: This study used an observational analytic method with a cross sectional approach. The study population was students at elementary school 01 Rajabasa Raya and elementary school 02 Kampung Baru. The samples were as many of 57 respondents calculated using the Lameshow formula. The sampling technique uses stratified random sampling. Data analysis used univariate analysis, bivariate with chi square formula and multivariate analysis with multiple logistic regression formula. Results: There showed that 55.6% of respondents experienced noise intensity ≥55dB and 44.4% experienced noise intensity <55 dB. The respondents who experienced hearing dirsorder were as much as 42.9% while 57.1% did not experience hearing disorders. Chi Square statistical test results prove the influence of noise intensity (p = 0,000), residence (p = 0.039), heredity (p = 0.002), earphone use (p = 0.042) on hearing impairment in elementary school students. The variable duration of exposure (p = 0.118), history of ear infection (p = 0.070), school building construction materials (p = 0.212) and barrier (p = 0.071) did not affect the hearing impairment of elementary school students. The results of multivariate analysis showed that there was a significant influence between noise from railway on the hearing function of elementary school students (p = 0,000) without being controlled by the variable duration of exposure, residence, hereditary history, history of previous hearing ailments, the use of earphones or headsets, school building construction materials and school environment barriers.
