Abstract

Tofubusiness is a business that always done by manual material handling. The study aims to identify the workload and complaints on the tofu business. The research method is standard nordiqquestinnaire used to identify the point of the workercomplaint, biomechanics and REBA to identify workload done by the worker, anthropometry and percentile used to design, statistic test used to process anthropometry data, excel software used for data calculation anthropometry and percentile, auto cad software is used to create research designs. Result of the discussion that standard nordiq questionnaire have 26 point of complaint, REBA get three workers with action level 3, biomechanics used is maximum permissible limit got result with mean of force equal to 8676,36 N. The conclusion of standard nordiq questionnaire identifies 26 complaints of pain and rather ill, REBA identifies that three workers with a high risk level so that the workload is large, the MPL identifies that all workers have a large workload so that the activity is dangerous. Workload is minimized by ergonomic work station design and lay-out.
