The workers for the PT. X construction project have high occupational hazards and risks during the current pandemic.The workers have a higher risk of COVID-19 exposure. In case a worker is exposed to the COVID-19, then his/her co-worker will directly or indirectly take over the job. This situation can cause construction workers to get fatigue. Work fatigue results in occupational accidents. Fatigue can reduce the attentiveness, decision-making ability, muscle work / strength, communications skill, productivity, alertness, physical and mental performance and work motivation of the workers. This study was to determine effects of the COVID-19 on work fatigue at PT.X. The total population of the study was 353 workers at PT. X with the inclusion criteria including workers working overtime and taking over their co-workers' jobs in the last one month; while, the exclusion criteria was workers who never worked overtime and took over their co-workers’ jobs. A total of 55 workers were analyzed univariately and bivariately by simple linear regression analysis model. The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in fatigue for the PT. X workers. A significant variable was age of the workers, those working for >8 hours a day, > 5 years of service, and spending less time for rest that caused fatigue in them. The pandemic indirectly affects fatigue in the PT. X workers, also changes work dynamics in Project X. Workers taking over their co-workers’ jobs and those working overtime experience significant fatigue, particularly for workers who are older, work for > 8 hours a day, > 5 years of service and spend less time for rest that cause fatigue in them.
