Depending on the client of the translation, I would check to see which term is in the applicable legislation. For example, if the applicable legislation is the Occupational Health and Safety Act, I would translate 'kerja' as 'occupational', rather than 'workplace' and vice versa.
Both 'workplace' safety and health and 'occupational' safety and health are correct, but 'workplace' seems to be more widely used in Indonesia (220,000 Google hits) than 'occupational" (25,800 Google hits).
