Ergonomics problem is one of the main issues faced by palm oil plantation workers especially during their daily work activities.Intensive manual handling and labor activities involved have been associated with high prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among a small size palm oil plantation workers.New and safe technology on equipment in palm oil plantation are very important to help workers in order to reduce risks and injuries while working.The aim of this research is to improve ergonomic factor in the design of a wheelbarrow for human well-being and overall system performance.The wheelbarrow design was drawn using SOLID WORKS software. The characteristic of ergonomics assessment is performed by comparing the existing design of wheelbarrow. Conceptual design was developed based on the problems that have been reported by workers in surveys where the most affected body part are shoulders,lower back,wrist and hand.From DELMIA ergonomic analysis,RULA score for the design improvement of the wheelbarrow for palm oil plantation workers have been successfully decreased and the risk faced by the users is lower compared with the previous score of existing model.
