Abstract: The ergonomic assessment has been carried out to recognize aspects contributing to discomfort to the workers working at Mudrankan Printing Press and identify ergonomic recommendations to reduce them. To prevent MSDs resulting from the ergonomic risk factor and bad work organization and hence to improve the productivity, safety and health the ergonomic intervention is the right choice.to meet diversifying ergonomic needs, participatory steps reviewed are found to usually follow a good practice approach easily adjustable according to local needs. These steps are found to usually focus on low cost improvement. In this paper, we scrutinize several ergonomics issues pertaining to reduce the WMSDs among the workers, .in the propose system we introduce the participative intervention approach and use the ILO checkpoints.
