Abstract

The garment manufacturing process involves tasks such as fabric laying, pattern making, cutting, stitching, checking, ironing and packing. A preliminary ergonomics evaluation of the checking section indicated that the workers in this section experienced postural discomfort. A work-station was designed considering factors such as type and nature of activity, time spent on the activity and productivity. The new work-station was a height adjustable table, with an adjustable tilting surface. This table was evaluated and the results indicated a reduction in the postural stress.
