Indonesia is a large country with the population of disabilities among 21,84 million that still lack of participation in profession especially formal working in the manufacturing sector [1]. There is a high standard about labor requirements in much manufactory that is still stereotyped by physical conditions. Despite of the incapability of body functions, people with disabilities optimize it in another physical. The reality that founded is like a Blind person having a sense of touch and memorize is more persistent than a normal person, or a Deaf person using more visual perception and imagination in advance than a hearing person and another example. It represents their capable to work, but still difficult because on discrimination and facilities. To evolve disabilities on work labor this research is study about routes system that make it easier person with disabilities to walk around factory and more independently. To designing the routes system using qualitative method with design thinking approach and adopts the concept of “universal design” that introduced by Ronald Mace in terms of accessibility to disabilities person able to do an activity more assisted. Accessibility also can encourage the involvement of persons with disabilities to a good economic opportunity. which will be used in developing a standard of accessibility in a manufacturing work place that is friendly for disability.
