Manual packaging with awkward work postures has a high level of work risk with recommendations for improvement that should be done as soon as possible. Work risks that can be caused by awkward work posture are Musculoskeletal disorder (MSDs). Therefore this study aims to improve the manual packaging work station by designing work tables and chairs based on an ergonomic approach so that it can improve work posture and reduce or even eliminate work risks. The research method used is a quantitative method with a descriptive approach. The results of this study are the design of tables and chairs with sizes obtained from the results of anthropometric measurements of workers. The results of this study imply that workers can do their jobs with good work postures so that work risks can be minimized.
