The industrial success greatly depends on the quality and delivery time. In order to achieve this industry should implement new techniques which will increase the quality, productivity and decrease worker fatigue. One such technique is ergonomics. This paper addresses the application of ergonomics in improving the quality of work life, reducing musculoskeletal disorders and increasing productivity. The existing workstation was studied and suggestion was given to improve the method for productivity by reducing shoulder and wrist injury and fatigue. A good ergonomic work station design showed a better interaction between man–machine systems. The new approach of studying the operations by Ergonomics assessment Work sheet includes Rula assessment, Work-place assessment and Composite Scoring system, by considering these factors, problems regarding the MSDs is reduced. It is observed that the newly designed workstation improved working posture and resulted in reduced postural stress on operator’s bodies and consequently reduced prevalence of MSDs symptoms
