In the shipbuilding industry, the majority of ship accidents are caused by human error. other factors are caused by the work environment, company conditions, management policies and others. These data show that human factor has a major impact on accidents. Therefore, a proper prevention is required. The purpose of this research is to determine the relationship between individual characteristics and work accident factors as well as to determine the prevention of work accidents. The method used in this paper is bivariate method. Then, the analysis was conducted using the chi square approach. The result of this research showed that age has a relationship with knowledge of engineering and skill. It has meaning that older workers would most likely understand in engineering better than the younger ones. Work pressure also has a relationship with age. It has meaning that the workers with an age of <35 and >45 have more work pressure than those with an age of 35 - 45. Furthermore, tenure and education do not have a relationship with work accident factors. Thus, some efforts are needed to minimize work accidents, such as providing in-class training to new workers, doing on-job training or field training, providing assistance on every job, exchange of workers from one place to another, sharing sessions on static electricity to young workers, creating a comfortable work atmosphere, provide adequate facilities, provide training on stress management and decision making.
