This study was designed to analyze the factors of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) implementation affecting the performance of road construction workers. The research employed a quantitative survey method by self-distributing questionnaires using simple random sampling to 50 road construction workers on a road-widening project, with a 99% response rate. The analysis based on the results of the questionnaire data through the validity test, reliability, and the multiple regressions testing: f-test and t-test of each statement item. Regarding the descriptive analysis test results, the most dominant among several elements of Work Safety variable statement was the appropriate use of work equipment, which was 81%. In contrast, the practical result of the Occupational Health variable was the first aid kits provided by companies, which was 82%. For the Worker Performance variable, the dominant result was the workers' attitude to conform to the rules leading to achieving work targets, which was 88%. Furthermore, according to the results of multiple regressions testing, it can be concluded that the implementation of occupational safety and health had a positive effect on employee performance. The findings show that the application of OHS in construction projects affects the performance of workers which ultimately also determines the achievement of the company's work targets.
