The numbers of accidents in construction projects in Indonesia is the highest in the industries as mentioned by the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration’s publication. Construction accidents are often reported in the media such as televisions, newspapers, magazines, and the internet. This study employs construction accident data from the internet, from the year 2012 to 2014 using search engines with keywords such as construction work accident, falling from height, an accident from falling objects, electrical shock, etc. The data are then analyzed to understand the types, causes and impacts of accidents and suggestion for future improvement. The results showed that of the 332 data obtained, accidents in building projects are the highest (47%), followed by that in housings (42%) and others (11%). According to the types of accidents, electrical shock is the highest (115 cases), followed by falling from height (91 cases) and stricken by objects (83 cases). The causes of accident due to unsafe acts was 61% and unsafe condition was 39%. Most of the accidents can be categorized as fatal (68%), serious (16%) and catastrophic (14%). It is recommended that administrative action and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should be applied to reduce the risk of accident.
