Or, all equipment used by employees needs to be made that can be adjusted (adjustable) to adapt the equipment to human users (employees); c) the environment needs to be made ergonomically, namely the physical environment according to the provisions of the threshold value (NAV), and the chemical and biological environment according to quality standards; d). employees will feel ergonomic if they are protected from psychological/psychic pressure and heat stress; and e). the application of ergonomics in the company will be implemented if there is a commitment from all parties in the company and especially management commitment. Second: a). quality improvement will occur if customer satisfaction occurs, and employees need to have good character and are experts in the field of product production; b). the application of ergonomics in the manufacturing (production) process will improve product quality, reduce production costs, and are needed by customers.
