Ergonomics in the workplace involves the design and arrangement of tools to ensure workers can use easily and safely. Practicing ergonomics reduce risk of injury and increase comfort and productivity at workplaces. Use resources to ensure work environment and work practices. The purpose of the study is to develop a conceptual model of ergonomic workplace design through an observation survey to enhance the workplace safety in manufacturing. The study emphasizes the need to redesign the work environment in lab with the ergonomic approach. Safety is a basic physical and psychological need of human beings in daily life and work. The study clarifies the measures taken to ensure workers’ safety and health, also establishes the relation between ergonomic workplace design and productivity.
