The goals of this thesis is to identify what are the human factors and ergonomic factors that influence the prevention of fatal work accidents in the oil and gas industry with an offshore work environment. Data was taken by distributing questionnaires using the Likert scale to 126 offshore oil and gas workers. The combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches was used in this study. The research data were analyzed by descriptive analysis method and validated using SPSS statistical software ver.16 to ensure the research data had good validity, reliability and accuracy. The results of the study show that the main causes of fatal work accidents in the offshore oil and gas industry are human errors, conditions of workers who are not fit and lack of knowledge. The type of human error that causes it is disobedience, lack of rest or fatigue, and not concentration. Meanwhile, the most ergonomically dangerous type of activity is working at height, lifting, and working in a confined space. From this study it can also be concluded that human factors have a greater influence compared to the effect of ergonomic factors. Based on the results of these studies, it was designed a simple tool to test the level of fitness both physically and mentally from workers in the offshore oil and gas industry to prevent fatal work accidents.
