Ergonomics Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment of Visual Inspection Process in a Semiconductor Manufacturing Industry
This research deal with the ergonomics hazard in the semiconductor manufacturing industry.
Lack of ergonomics safety often causes the presence of hazards to the workers. The purpose of hazard
identification and risk assessment in this study is to highlight the critical operations of tasks that pose
significant risks to workers' health and safety and highlight those ergonomics hazards pertaining to
working conditions or activities performed. In order to assess the presence of hazards, its risks and its
preventive measures, Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control (HIRARC) assessment
was done. The risk assessment’s results presented in a risk matrix are essential to make decisions on
risk control. The results show that the final process, which was checked on the bonded unit under the
microscope and destroyed the reject unit by using tweezers was classified as extreme risk level. This
shows that ergonomics safety is an essential aspect that needs to be prioritised to produce productive
