One of Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) which engages in the field of handicraft in Randuagung Singosari Malang produces various kind of souvenirs, such as twist glass, bell, fruit shaped glass, and wedding souvenirs. All of which are made from fluorescent lamp waste. The waste utilization has become a solution to the overflowing fluorescent waste from factories around the region. As the main factor in determining productivity, workstation is not yet getting serious attention. Workers use short seats when performing work on the handicraft. The tools they use are in lower setting, making them sit in squat-like position. This position setting and the unergonomic workstation tend to make workers feel tired easily which result to the lack productivity. Therefore an ergonomic workstation model is created through the production of fluorescent lamp waste recycling tool with the anthropometric approach. This study used quantitative research method by designing the model based on the anthropometry of the worker's body, resulting in an ergonomic workstation. The resulting model can improve work productivity, which ultimately can improve welfare in a sustainable manner. The application of ergonomic workstation accelerate souvenir making process. Before the design of workstation is 2.58 minute/piece, after the design of workstation is 2.17 minute/piece.
