Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) hazard communication plays an important role in the construction project work environment. So as to reduce hazards in the workplace that cause injury or loss of life and material damage. Conduct a test using a psychometric assessment to find out the understanding and meaning of the respondents regarding the hazard symbols installed in the construction project area. In addition, providing education about pictogram symbols and potential hazards around the project. The effect of having pictogram symbols in the Aisyiyah Hospital construction project area significantly increases knowledge about any potential hazards that might occur.
