The danger of second wave of the corona virus outbreak found in 2019 (COVID-19) threatens Indonesia. The International Labour Organization (ILO) has warned that without adequate safeguards for returning workers there could be a second wave of the virus. The results of the study have stated that Indonesia is at the level of the country most at risk of experiencing the danger of the Second Wave along with 14 other countries in the world. The construction sector in Indonesia was recorded as one of the business sectors that scored positive performance gains amid slowing economic growth. Indonesia's construction sector contracted as a result of the Large-Scale Social Restrictions (LSSR) to control the spread of COVID-19. The Indonesian government has issued a protocol to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the construction sector. The implementation of this protocol still raises many obstacles and is seen as not being able to answer the regulatory requirements for working in New Normal conditions in the construction sector. This research tries to present information related to the challenges and opportunities of the construction sector in Indonesia in facing the threat of a COVID-19 pandemic through the in-depth online interview method conducted by researchers of more than 600 construction and Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) stakeholders in Indonesia. The information and data obtained were analyzed by the SWOT method. The conclusion of this study is that Indonesia needs to make more serious, real, massive, and structured efforts in the construction sector to anticipate the threat of the spread of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
