The juice extraction is by different types of machines available in the market where some are having inbuilt workstation and some are placed on the workstation.

This study was focused on the extraction Sugarcane juice manually and the problems faced by the vendors during the extraction of juice. The vendors faced pain in their body parts viz., shoulders, wrist, arms, and neck due to the improper height of the workstations on which they are working. Increase in the height of the workstation, providing waste bin at the reachable height, providing flip to the machine so that the hand injuries are some of the improvised design features of the workstation so that the injuries can be avoided during the juice extraction.
