Ergonomics can be viewed as an approach to reduce injury and illness rates to improve the overall working conditions for employees by addressing risk factor exposure that may occur during manual tasks. The objective of this research was to analyze ergonomics risk factors by associating the perception of employer and employees towards their workplace condition in quarry and mining industry. A Questionnaire on Ergonomics Risk Assessment was used to determine the comparison level awareness and perception analysis among quarry and mining industry in Malaysia. The findings of this research prove that the exposure of ergonomics risk factors towards the workers is in a moderate level with a mean of 3.59 for the overall respondent review about the ergonomics risk among workers at their workplace. Besides, the most concern in ergonomics is about the awkward posture at work. Some 8.8% of them agreed and 6.6% of them totally agreed that they were in awkward posture while doing their work. As a conclusion, assessment of ergonomics in quarry and mining industry will be a platform to provide a safe and healthy working environment.
