The purpose of this project was to generate an anthropometric database of the Chilean working population to facilitate the design of elements related to work systems, considering the differences of gender.

This project confirmed the presence of a positive secular growth, as well as the differences between genders. The existence and correct implementation of this database will allow for the development and design of spaces and elements of safe work for both genders.
