Abstract

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have a large contribution to Indonesia's economic growth, however, the productivity of Indonesian SMEs is still relatively low. One of the causes of the low productivity of SMEs in Indonesia is the ergonomics analysis has not yet been applied, especially environmental ergonomics. The owner or company management often does not pay attention to the conditions of the work environment. Besides, there is still very little research in this field. This study is intended to provide an overview of the working conditions of SMEs in Indonesia over the past decade. For this purpose, it was searched for research articles related to environmental ergonomics in Indonesian SMEs published from 2008 to 2018. The search results show that the working environment conditions in SMEs, such as temperature, lighting, noise, relative humidity, air quality, air velocity, and vibration, are almost all outside the specified threshold value. Various efforts need to be made to improve the working conditions of SMEs in Indonesia and encourage SME management to pay more attention to the environmental ergonomics aspects so that the conditions in the workspace of SMEs become healthier, more comfortable, and more productive.
