- Background: UNESCO has recognised batik Indonesia as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2009. Batik is a widespread industry and employed many workers. The previous study in a company found that chemical and ergonomic are the highest hazards, which include work for 6-8 hours/day in an awkward position and complaint about the weariness. The purpose of this study was to develop the prototypes according to the workers’ anthropometry data and to test them. Methods: The study was conducted by observation, interview, and anthropometry measurement. Results: It stated that the prototypes decrease the ergonomic risks on the back, wrist/hand, and the neck without considering the MSDs complaints. Conclusion: The proposed batik workers’ workstation involving chair and ‘gawangan’ decrease the occupational health risk faced by the workers
