Abstract
One of the determinant factors in work productivity is an employee. An employee who feels comfortable with his work activities can increase productivity. In implementing the comfort for the employees, it is necessary to pay attention to the work position or posture which is ergonomic. this is because an ergonomic working environment could minimize injury or work accidents occuring. Ergonomics is the study of the interaction between humans and other elements in a system. Ergonomics approach in analyzing work position uses the REBA (Rapid Entire Body Assessment) and RULA (Rapid Upper Limb Assessment) method. The objective of this research is to analyse of operators' working position when producing sandals using the RULA and REBA method at SISCO. Based on the results and analysis of the work position or posture of SISCO operators when carrying out production activities using REBA or RULA method approach, results indicated that either in the work position/posture A or standing, it has a high risk level with a score of 9 on REBA and 8 on RULA. It means that the work position is not recommended because of the high risk of injury, thus it needs an improvement from the operator's position or the workplace. In position B (squat) and C (sit) have a score of 5 on RULA and REBA which have a medium level. It means that it needs an improvement.
