A work accident can occur anytime and anywhere to the worker if they take unsafe action and are in an unsafe condition. Mining areas located in the hills have unsafe conditions for operating heavy equipment, such as steep terrain conditions, slippery roads, and foggy weather, and lack of lighting. Installation of light assign is the right step in reducing work accidents at night, foggy and rainy weather. Measurement of wind data and calculation of wind potential statistically using Weibull distribution. The parameter values of scale and shape are 1.67 and 1,71 respectively, with an average wind speed of 1,49 m/s and the wind power potential of 3.14 W/m2. Based on measurement and analysis results, this quarry always gets wind gusts both day and night, so it has the potential to take advantage of wind energy either on a small turbine scale or in small and medium electric power.
