The data in the field, in fact, shows that the level of accidents on construction projects in Indonesia is notably poor. On the other hand, facing the era of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) Indonesian contractors are demanded to increase their competitiveness in which one of their projects runs with zero accidents. This study was conducted in the objectives of (i) evaluating the OSH standard implementation in the construction companies in Indonesia.
