Abstract

The stress level of the worker is related with the workplace condition and satisfaction. Instead of stress level, working environment also can affect workers' performance. Basically, physical environment, work organization and psycho-social factor are the main cause of stress in the workplace. This paper is about the development environment monitoring system for the safe assembly task in manufacturing company. There are six potential useful parameter proposed in this study. The parameters include temperature, light, indoor air quality and noise. In this framework, the capturing device and signal converter are regarded as the main components. The monitoring system is proposed to capture all parameters in analogue signal and later convert it into digital signal using signal converter. At this stage, NI cDAQ-9188 is proposed to be used the signal converter in the monitoring system. The valuation test was held in ABC company at welding section. The aim of the valuation test is to know the result form the environment monitoring system is successful and compared to conventional method. It is hoped that the proposed monitoring system will benefit industry and promotes a safe working environment in industry especially in assembly task.
