For industrial use, ergonomics has traditionally been used to solve the injuries problem from repetitive motion, prolonged postures, and some other physical risks. However, the utility of ergonomics is not just only limited to solve the injuries problem. Good ergonomics investment also can be applied to improve productivity. This project are carried out at Sidmann Composite Sdn Bhd. The Objective of this project are propose a new workplace with ergonomics features for Sidmann Composite Sdn.

A comprehensive data collection was divided into three phase, such as phase one is to perform up-front analysis, phase two is to determine the existing working process risk and operational impact, phase three is to estimate proposed working process risk and operational impact. The assessment was carried out by Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA) and Strain Index (SI) to assess the level of musculoskeletal risk in this company. Methods-Time Measurement (MTM) was used to determine the labor time for the performing task improvement. Finally, existing process and proposed process was compared in this project.
