In Indonesia, traffic accidents are one of the biggest causes of death. Based on the number of accidents for the end of 2014 in Southeast Sulawesi increased compared to 2015. The number of traffic accidents occurring in Southeast Sulawesi is dominated by productive ages. Based on the description of traffic accidents case needs to do some review both from previous research result and based on some theory, then done by giving the solution based on safety and health science so that traffic accidents case does not increase from year to year especially in Southeast Sulawesi area. This study aims to find out the causes of the increasing number of traffic accidents in Southeast Sulawesi, review the driving behavior based on Health Belief Model (HBM) Theory and conduct Traffic Accident Control efforts reviewed based on Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) approach. This research use case study method and literature study. Primary data obtained from direct interviews with experts in their field. Secondary data obtained online media review literature. Research results indicate that the cause of the increasing number of traffic accidents in Southeast Sulawesi is unsafe behavior in driving, especially in the productive age. Based on a review of driving behavior using HBM theory it is found that drivers who drive in good behavior can avoid and can prevent accidental conditions otherwise poor driving behavior can lead to accidents. Although the driving behavior is also inseparable from the level of education, culture. Efforts to reduce the number of traffic accidents based on the approach of Occupational Safety and Health Sciences that is with early detection and prevention by civilizing OSH in driving such as the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Safety culture in driving should be done with promotion and training. The conclusion of unsafe behavior in driving as the cause of work accident can be suppressed by civilizing OSH before driving.
