The application of ergonomics in work place is important because the lack of attention can cause health problems to worker, this can be performed by postural assessment using method of visual management, which assessing each elementary operation of a process to the selected domain ergonomics to produce PES (partial ergonomic score) and with a formula then value of OES (overall ergonomic score) is obtaned that shows the operation status of a process. The results obtained from this study is 5 process have value of OES in the range 0.4<OES≤0.5 so operation status is "investigate; change may be needed” while 17 process have value of OES in the range 0.5<OES≤0.7 so operation status is “investigate; change soon”. The conclusion of this study is the change of work posture of the worker is needed, which can be conducted by designing a facility based on the elementary operation with the highest value of PES.
