The work process for most MSMEs in Indonesia is still mostly done manually with simple equipment, unorganized workspaces, and do not pay attention to a good work environment, health, and comfort of workers while working so that many workers experience speed of physical complaints. There are many ways to make the work environment comfortable. One way that can be tried to create a healthy and comfortable work environment is to apply Ergonomic in the workplace. The purpose of counseling in three MSMEs at Rockmantic Store, Gitrys Konveksi and CV.
