Abstract: This research seeks to contribute, under an ergonomic and work safety perspective, to the design of a sugar cane harvester workstation. The mechanical conception uses human operators in the transfer of sugar cane from the feed unity to the cleaner unit, trying to preserve part of the human labor traditionally used in manual harvest. Using ergonomics concepts, it was done a future activity analysis and scenery building for the design of the work stations. Anthropometric, Biomecanic and Work Safety principles were used in the analysis and design of the equipment. The results show the efficiency of conception ergonomics as a design methodological tool when applied to new mechanical concepts.
