Background: Work accident is a significant burden to society. Multiple factors con­tri­bu­te to work accident. Previous studies have focused on identifying individual and work­­­­place contributing factors. Unsafe action and unsafe worksite may contribute to in­­jury among workers. This study aimed to determine the relationship between unsafe action and condition with work accident among production unit workers at the Jaya Sen­trikon Indonesia Commpany, Padang, West Sumatra.

Subjects and Method: This was a cross sectional study conducted at Jaya Sentrikon Indonesia Commpany, Padang, West Sumatera from September 2016 to Februari 2017. A sample of 50 workers was selected for this study. The dependent variable was work acci­dent. The dependent variables were unsafe action and unsafe condition. The data were collected by a set of questionnaire and observation. The data was analyzed by a mul­­­tiple logistic regression.

Results:  60 % workers aged > 36 years old. 100% workers were male. As many as 62% wor­kers had experienced work accident.  50% workers did unsafe action and 64% had unsafe condition. The risk of work accident increased with unsafe action (OR=24.43; 95% CI= 4.59 to 130.01; p= 0.001) and unsafe condition (OR=11.26; 95% CI= 2.88 to 43.93; p= 0.001).
