This paper presents the use of a scale model made of Lego and other intermediary objects used as support for physical simulations in ergonomics in a biotechnology laboratory complex project. The objective of this work is to depict the preparation and use of intermediary objects in a simulation in ergonomics. This work will display elements of simulation planning itself, such as working group formation, scale model preparation and information provided during simulations. Providing information to help ergonomists to prepare and organize their activities and simulations for design.
