Based on Nordic Body Map questionnaire operators felt pain at upper neck, left wrist, right wrist, lower neck, waist, right elbow, and leg. For decreasing MSDs risk this research gave body postur recommendation and machine movement method. Body posture recommendation was generated besed on Ovako Work Posture Analysis System (OWAS). Meanwhile, Machine movement method was generated based on NIOSH.
