Human factors/ergonomics – Design

The application of human factors to the design 21 development of systems and services is often called Human Factors Engineering or Human Factors Integration. A resource pack The purpose of this resource pack is to provide an introduction to ergonomics for people who work offshore. Failure to observe ergonomic principles can have serious consequences for individuals and for the whole organisation.

Available from BSI Standards. Consideration should be given to the interface between the end user and the system. A – switch to normal size A – switch to large size A – switch to larger size.

Consideration should be given to operator characteristics including body size, strength and mental capability. Covers design principles, control eemu arrangements and layout, workstations, displays, controls, interactions, temperature, lighting, acoustics, ventilation, and evaluation. It sets out to raise your awareness of some of the ergonomic problems in the offshore workplace; to explain the causes of ergonomic related accidents and injuries, and to provide some practical information to help reduce eemuua risks.


Note that this approach has been developed in relation to large projects e. Implementation in the onshore and offshore industries Gives an overview of best practice on how to build human factors into design. The earlier that consideration is given to human factors and ergonomics in the design process, the better the results are likely to be. Effective use eemka ergonomics will make work safer, healthier and more productive.

Why is design important? Users should be involved in the design process. This should include different types of users including operatives, maintenance and systems support personnel. More information on design Reducing error and influencing behaviour HSG48 Pages contain a good summary of key design issues. A work system is defined as ‘a combination of people and equipment, within a given space and environment, and the interactions between these components with a work organisation’ p Designing tasks, equipment and work stations to suit the user can reduce human error, accidents and ill-health.
