Abstract

Diamond polishing is a type of work that requires high accuracy therefore it requires adequate supporting facilities in order to avoid the possibility of potential interference / complaints occurring as the result of non-ergonomic working facilities. This is a descriptive research to describe the state of the working desks and chairs used by the workers on Martapura diamond polishing. The research purposes were to identify the dimensions of working-desks and chairs that are being used and the perceived impact by workers on Martapura diamond polishing business unit. The working-desk and chairs measurement was conducted by using gauge instrument while the data of working-desks and chairs utilization impact was collected by observation and interview to all workers on working site. The measurement result showed that working-desks and chairs at Martapura diamond polishing business unit were not ergonomic yet. Those non-ergonomic conditions have several impacts on diamond polishing workers in the form of fatigue (14.28%), back pain (87.5%), and scoliosis (14.28%). The efforts that should be made to reduce the subjective complaint is with the use of designated working-desks and chairs appropriate with the results of anthropometry calibration in Martapura diamond polishing workers in example for the working-desks is 51-62 cm high and 63-76 cm width, while the chairs is 47-54 cm high, 33-42 cm width, 50-55 cm length and equipped with a backrest. In addition, the workers need to perform relaxation movements such as changing sitting position once in a hour, doing light movement to avoid tingling and also always to work in the upright sitting position to minimized back pain experience. This research was expected could be used as an input and consideration in creating a safe working environment and meet the health requirements, particularly in the diamond processing industry.
