Comfortable workplace, healthy and safely is the goal of implementing occupational safety and health requirements. Ergonomics is one of the factors that can affect employee productivity. Achieving harmony between labor, equipment, environment, work methods and work processes is the most important application of ergonomics. The purpose of this study is to investigate the improvement of working conditions through the application of ergonomics in the workplace. Ergonomic testing is carried out using the Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) analysis method to evaluate worker posture on work machines or operating systems and to investigate reduction in upper extremities and Ergonomic Factor Policy Identification (SHORT), which is an ergonomic evaluation method that focuses on frequency, duration, weight and posture to identify ergonomic hazards faced by everyday workers using an assessment system. The results of ergonomic application analysis are on average at a low risk level. Improvements can be made to reduce the level of risk experienced by employees in accordance with ergonomic standards, including improving the design of tables and chairs, adjusting work positions, avoiding odd work positions, stretching muscles while doing work at the computer.
