Abstract: An efficient and effective system, which is the base of a productive system, depends on the manner of service delivery by human operators. Important aspect is an ergonomics in order to improve performance of workers at work, develop an independent measure at work which will coordinate psychological, physical, and physiological aspects that is dependable for person behavior and effectiveness at work and stand as a key factor deciding workers efficiency. This paper center of attention on the ergonomics thought required to be governed in the small scale industries (SSIs), a precise case of Cultivators and Harvestor manufacturing unit is considered, which is different from all these aspects. mainly, an important & large component ‘turn table’ is consider for analyzing the ergonomic manufacturing methods. The crack between ergonomic considerations and actual practices at the place of work gives the standpoint to design the workstation. The data of musculoskeletal disorder of employee working at workplace of Cultivators and Harvestor manufacturing unit is collected, analyzed and justified by using REBA.
