Occupational safety and health is one of the important factors that can affect employees’ productivity. Risk of accidents and occupational diseases often occur because the occupational safety and health program is not performing properly which can have an impact on the level of employees’ productivity.

Variables used in this study consisted of two types, i.e. latent variables and indicator variables. Data were collected using a questionnaire which was consisted of questions include all research variables and the response was measured using a Likert scale. The data then were analyzed by partial least squares method using software SmartPLS ver 2 for windows. The results showed that the occupational safety variable with regression coefficient 0.137 did not give a significant impact on employees’ productivity. Occupational health variable with regression coefficient 0.258 gave a significant impact on employees’ productivity. Safety variable with regression coefficient 0.587 gave a significant impact on occupational health. It can be concluded that occupational safety did not give a directly significant effect on employees’ productivity, occupational safety indirectly affect employees’ productivity through occupational health, occupational health directly gave a significant impact on productivity of employees.
