Ergonomics

  1. 1. Human Factors Engineering: "The field of human factors engineering uses scientific knowledge about human behavior in specifying the design and use of a humanmachine system. The aim is to improve system efficiency by minimizing human error."
  2. 2.  Ergonomics: “It is a knowledge based on scientific studies of ordinary people in work situations applied to the design of processes and machines, to the layout of work places, to methods of work, and to the control of the physical environment, in order to achieve greater efficiency of both men and machines."
  3. 3.  Ergonomics is a science concerned with the ‘fit’ between people and their work.
  4. 4.     To assess the fit between a person and their work, you have to consider a range of factors, including: The job/task being done: The demands on the worker (activities, workload, work pacing, shiftwork and fatigue). The equipment used (its design in terms of size, shape, controls, displays, and how appropriate it is for the task). The information used (how it is presented, accessed, and changed). The physical environment (temperature, humidity, lighting, noise, vibration).
  5. 5.          The individual’s physical and psychological characteristics: Body size and shape. Fitness and strength. Posture. The senses, especially vision, hearing and touch. Mental abilities. Personality. Knowledge. Training. Experience.
