Abstract

In production activities, there is manual material handling activities which can cause work accidents. Pharmaceutical Company in Bogor has a packaging material warehouse that is still doing activities manually, such as using a hand pallet, taking cartons from trucks, moving cartons, putting cartons on a pallet. This activity causes injury to the muscles known as Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). In 2018 the high absence of operators in the warehouse of packaging materials reached 26.89%, caused by injuries to the muscles of the body or Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). The injury resulted in an inefficient packaging material warehouse, which could affect the production process, so a study was conducted to analyze the posture of the container material warehouse operator in carrying out its activities using the REBA method of the three packaging material warehouse operators. The REBA method is a method in the field of ergonomics that is used quickly to assess the posture of a worker 's neck, back, arms, wrists, and legs. Based on these problems, the purpose of this study is to analyze the operator's posture when carrying out work activities in the packaging material warehouse using the REB method and provide suggestions for improving the activities that cause complaints.
