Good posture can be an indicator of increased work productivity. This study was conducted to analyze work posture and to determine the level of risk of the upper body posture when working as a cashier at a QRS pharmacy. The research method is used in determining the object of research, collecting data, processing data, analyzing, and providing recommendations. Data processing and analysis techniques are Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) and Quick Exposure Checklist (QEC) using ErgoFellow software. The results showed that the operator’s risk level worked in the medium risk classification with a final score of 5 and the exposure score of 60.49% or in the classification investigated further and changed soon. Work posture recommendations for operators can be supported by redesigning tools on chairs and tables so that they are more comfortable to use and doing stretching every certain unit of time.
