Bayu Putut Tri Nugroho, Irwan Iftadi, Taufiq Rochman


The process of transporting rice sacks in a rice mill in Sragen area is still held manually without transporting aid. The distance between two stations is 10 meters and the sacks weigh 40 kilograms. According to the Bordic Body Map questionnaires handed out to the workers, their complaint is about pain in neck area, upper left arm, upper right arm, back, waist, left thigh, right thigh, left calf, and right calf.
The proposal of the trolley design as an aid for transporting rice sacks is accomplished by analyzing work postures using REBA method, then deciding the anthropometry dimension to decide the dimension of the trolley design. According to the 3D (three dimensional) picture of the design, which is then supported by the calculation result using REBA method, it is found that the design of trolley as an aid for transporting rice sacks results in improvement of work postures. The highest score of REBA before the design is 10, which represents high risk level, while the score after the design is 6, represents average risk level.
