Abstract :

Ergonomics is a significant factor in reducing discomfort/pain of worker and is one of the procedures that eliminate the hazards and risk in construction industry. This study was conducted on Bridge site, Godavari River at about ergonomics practices.The method used in collecting the data is by choosing different sites and observing task of workers with the help analysis was lifting and handling the reinforcement.
