CV. Wira Vulcanized is a company engaged in tire vulcanization. The company was established on December 5, 2012. CV Wira Vulcanized has 16 workers who start working from 08:00-17:00. Work carried out on the floor of tire vulcanizing production will not escape work accidents. The workers cause many accidents on the production floor for not complying with OHS regulations. The work accident caused the company a loss of time and also a loss of income. To solve problems that occur in CV. Wira Vulcanized is proposed to improve the work system using the Systematic Cause Analysis Technique (SCAT) method. This method is one of the methods to identify the cause of the work accident from the actual picture so that it can be known as a picture of the direct cause and the root cause. The conclusion of this study is. The Frequency Rate (FR) of work accidents for every one million human hours worked from 2018 to 2020 was 131. Meanwhile, the Severity Rate (SR) is 125 days lost for one million hours worked. The most common causative factors are hazardous to work equipment (Sharp Blades), not using PPE, exposure to tire debris, being hit by heavy loads, and slipping. Proposed improving the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) system on CV.Wira Vulcanized in order to minimize work accidents, making OHS SOP, adding OHS signs, routinely conducting OHS training, and tightening supervision of the use of PPE.
