Abstract

Establishment of Indonesia New Capital City (Ibu Kota Nusantara) is an initiative by the Government to promote equal economic and infrastructure development throughout the country. Consequently, the report made from safety awareness reveals several unsafe conditions during the construction project, possibly arising from various factors. In general, safety culture of construction industry mirrors the evolution of ‘safety culture theory’. The theory emphasizes developing beliefs and taking practical steps to reduce accidents, specifically in the construction sector. Therefore, this research aimed to validate and review the factors influencing total construction safety culture, in order to improve safety performance. Furthermore, these factors were validated using Delphi method and the results showed that 36 factors contributed to the development of total construction safety culture. This outcome helped in improving safety performance in the establishment of Indonesia New Capital City. Specifically, the 36 factors included those related to workers, management, and project complexity that could influence the development of total construction safety culture. This outcome held significant implications for improving safety performance in the establishment of Indonesia New Capital City and could be applicable in similar contexts, which can used by construction company management to create a strategy to minimize an accident.
