ABSTRACT

Work activities in the office are generally static and take a long period of time. This activity is carried out with awkward postures that result in fatigue and injuries. The study is conducted in one of the business entities providing services construction and management of network infrastructure at the Division of Process Aligning Service Comply in January 2019. These activities are reflected in the conditions of work posture for bending, the use of maximum range and uncomfortable position of certain body parts, and will have an impact on decreasing productivity of workers. Therefore, an analysis was carried out to evaluate the posture of employees in order to find the potential problem of the work posture used. The RULA method can be used to evaluate musculoskeletal load in a job where a person has the risk of the upper-body activity. The sample used in this study was workers who work in a sitting position with their activities using a computer. Based on the analysis, it is known that worker activity gets a score that indicates that the workstation requires a change.
