Abstract

PT Lembah Karet is a manufacturing company. In the production process, crumb rubber is processed into rubber products which are used as raw material for tires, rubber pipes and equipment made of other rubber. In working, the operator's work posture determines the effectiveness of the work or not. Poor working posture will make the operator uncomfortable and tired easily. In the process of rolling the rubber, it looks like the work is not ergonomic. Ergonomics is the study of aspects related to humans and their working conditions which are reviewed in terms of anatomy, physiology, psychology, engineering, management and design or design. Workload assessment is calculated using the RULA method. From the calculation results obtained a score of 7 which indicates action level 4. A score of 7 indicates that the operator's work position is not ergonomic and changes are needed immediately. Keywords: Work Posture Assessment, ergonomics, RULA
