The research is a cross-sectional experimental study. This study used earplugs for operators working in production processes, to determine the effect of noise on product defect levels and productivity. The noise level received by each operator exceeded the allowed Hearing Threshold Level (HTL). Noise affects hearing health and operator comfort. After controlling noise through the use of Protective Equipment Ear (PEE), the work of operators cutting blocks increased, defective products decreased 1.73%, and the labour productivity index results increased 45.37%. For cross-cutting operators, defective products declined 3.38%, and labour productivity increased 44.47%. From research carried out the company was expected to pay attention to the comfort and health of workers, to control noise by increasing the damping material on a noisy machine, in addition to using ear protection such as ear plugs or earmuffs.

This study purposed to determine the influence of funding decisions on capital structure, in terms of its amount. Funding decisions in this study include firm’s growth (X1) and active structure (X2). The method used is multiple linear regressions. It sees effect from a firm’s growth (X1) and active  structure (X2) variables for capital structure (Y). This research qualifies as research that is free from autocorrelation, heteroscedasticity and multicollinearity. The results of this study indicate that firms’ growth has no significant effect on capital structure. However, the asset structure variable has a significant positive effect on the capital structure, in accordance with the proposed hypothesis. This study is limited to two independent variables. It needs to be developed with many independent variables, and to use the firm grouped by type of stock index. This study has value is finding that a high firm’s growth is largely funded from internal equity.  This is in accordance with pecking order theory, that funding should be from internal equity, external finance and external equity.
