Hospitals as a place for health services can be dangerous and high-risk places for work safety. Work accidents are generally caused by two main things, namely unsafe behavior, and unsafe conditions, it is estimated that work accidents occur due to unsafe work behavior. The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of Competence, Workload, and OHS Promotion on the safety behavior of health workers at X Karawang Hospital. The research method used is causal associative research with quantitative techniques using a cross-sectional approach. The research population amounted to 417 people. Samples were taken using a purposive random sampling technique and obtained 179 samples of health workers. The results showed that Competence, Workload, OHS Promotion can affect the safety behavior of health workers. The conclusion of the study shows that Competence, Workload, OHS Promotion together can significantly affect the safety behavior of health workers, partially competence and health promotion variables have a significant effect on safety behavior, while the workload variable does not affect safety behavior. The implications of the research are expected to be input for the OHS committee and management on achieving zero accidents by ensuring all levels of management and all employees follow the OHS policy without exception, providing adequate facilities and resources so that health and safety policies can be implemented properly including regular OHS training, evaluation of implementation, reward and punishment.
