Abstract

The current industrial development is getting more advanced and developing every year. However, these
developments have not been matched by awareness in understanding and carrying out work in accordance
with good occupational health and safety regulations so that work accidents still occur in every industrial
environment, including the plywood industry. The general objective of this study is to analyze the
circumstances that affect the incidence of corporate work accidents in Jember, Indonesia. This research
is a quantitative study, using an analytic observational research design with a cross sectional method. The
population used was all the rotary plywood industry workers of PT. X Jember Regency as many as 339
workers, with a sample size of 76 people. The sampling technique used in this study was quota random
sampling. The results showed that there was an influence between unsafe actions on the incidence of work
accidents with the Sig. .042, and there is an influence between unsafe conditions and work accidents with
the Sig. .016. The occurrence of work accidents does not just happen but happens because of something
wrong either because of the fault of the worker or because of the unsafe conditions of the worker or the work
environment.
