Abstract: Construction project work is one of the high-risk jobs. Based on statistical data on construction accidents in the last ten years, it continues to increase, which has an impact on decreasing work productivity and at the same time a threat to the health, safety and environment of the workforce. Efforts to increase awareness of Health, Safety and the Work Environment (HSE)for workers are important to provide encouraging attitudes and safe actions in preventing the risk of accidents and diseases caused by work, thereby increasing worker productivity.Motivation is a form of encouragement from within the employee to behave and act. The productivity of a construction project is closely related to the motivation of the workforce.The purpose of this study is to determine an effective model of health, safety and work environment (HSE) and to know the relationship between HSE factors as a prediction of work motivation to prevent the risk of work accidents.The research method used was a questionnaire survey distributed to 35 construction workers / contractors such as project managers, experts, project implementers, foremen and construction workers in buildings with more than five floors.Data were analyzed using Partial Least Squares. Work accidents affect HSE workers, which then makes work activities delayed, work costs increase, even the quality of work decreases. Therefore, efforts are needed to prevent work accidents through work motivation as psychological interventions in understanding HSE factors for increasing worker productivity on construction projects.The results of this study confirm that the worker’s health factors are able to predict work motivation and work motivation in stages of work productivity, meaning that the better the health of workers will increase work motivation and the higher the work motivation, the higher work productivity. Work environment factors indirectly have a positive effect on work productivity, meaning that the better the work environment, the higher the work productivity through work motivation.
