Abstract

Background: This research examined the field workers in Kelapa Gading LRT project that were susceptible to the psychosocial risk of work stress. Currently, psychosocial hazards raise a concern as this type of workplace hazard along with its significant impact are often unrecognized by workers or management. The number of work accidents also increased due to various factors ranging from physical, chemical, biological, radiological and psychosocial hazards factors. The purpose of this research is to analyze the correlation between psychosocial hazard towards work accident of workers at the Kelapa Gading LRT project by PT XYZ in 2018. Methods: This research employs a quantitative cross-sectional descriptive method by using the COPSOQ II modified questionnaire and research questionnaire from Goldenhar to measure the independent variable; and research questionnaire to measure the moderating variable. There are three variables: Independent variable (eight psychosocial factors), moderating variable (psychosocial risk) and the dependent variable (work accident). This research analyzes the independent variable with moderating variable and then analyzes moderating variable’s relationship with work accident as the dependent variable using Fisher Exact test. Result: The results show that there is a significant relationship between home-work interface, career development, and job certainty with psychosocial risk; and psychosocial risk has a significant relationship towards work accident. To minimize the adverse impacts of the psychosocial factors, the company should apply a reward system that can be given in material or appreciation of hard work to increase worker motivation and to create active communication between management and workers.
