Work Chairs, Design, Nordic Body Map, REBA anthropometry



Refilling of fire extinguishers is a key activity in PT Pinaco Utama Indonesia. In these activities, the workers doing the work manually with ergonomic postures that can cause a complaint to the musculoskeletal system. In a preliminary study, a questionnaire used Nordic Body Map is used to identify specific problems in parts of the body and using REBA (Rapid Entire Body Assessment) to determine the level of risk working posture. This preliminary study shows that workers have a lot of complaints on the part of their body with a high level of risk and very high. For that we need a tool that can reduce the complaints of the musculoskeletal system. Tools in the form of work chair. The purpose of this study was to design an ergonomic office chair and is equipped with several features to accommodate the needs and conditions in PT Pinaco Utama Indonesia. The first step of this research is to develop the expectations of the office chair features information then is poured into a design concept. Furthermore, this concept is manifested in a more specific design taking into account the anthropometric dimensions of the workers. Making the design and production cost calculation is made to perform a feasibility analysis in this research.
