The working area is the immediate surrounding of the workstation or desk. There are certain ergonomic aspects that need consideration when planning it:

  1. The operator’s body should be able to move and rotate freely, so leave enough space for movement, at least 80 cm.
  2. When operators are sitting or standing back-to-back in a U-Shape cell, they require their distance so that they do not get in each other’s way. This needs to be at least 160 cm, from desk to desk.
  3. There should be enough space for passing, as well as for the aisles and for maintenance work to be done in the cell.
