This study aims to explore the influence of workplace environment color on the performance of cracker factory workers. Focusing on a Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) Krupuk, the research investigates the relationship between suitable workplace colors and worker performance. The psychological impact of workplace colors on mood and task execution is examined, considering factors like emotions, concentration, and alertness. Data analysis employs SPSS software for linear regression and cross-tabulation methods, revealing that an illumination level of 44 lux leads to a completion time of 14.15 seconds in the grinding section. The study highlights the desired impact of the color yellow and underscores the significance of color selection in enhancing worker performance.
