Abstract

This paper presents the review of the studies carried out on the ergonomic design of industrial workstations. For most of the small scale industries in India the ergonomics principles are not considered at the time of designing industrial workstation. So there is a necessity to consider ergonomic principals at the time of designing industrial workstation to reduce musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and prevent injuries to the industrial operators. The objective of this paper is to give an overall literature review on the work done related to ergonomic evaluation of industrial workstations and suggested ergonomic improvements. Ergonomic problems are major issues faced by the foundry industry. The ergonomics principals play very vital role in operators’ productivity. The two factors, namely workstation layout and work design are important for operators’ or workers’ efficiency. Therefore, it is very much essential to review on the scientific studies whose aim is to achieve the ergonomic design of industrial workstations. Now a days manufactures found that improvements in ergonomics of workstation are more beneficial in terms of cost saving instead of investing cost in man, machine, material and method.

Keywords: Ergonomics, Ergonomic design, Workstations, Industrial operators
