Book description

With an updated edition including new material in additional chapters, this one-of-a-kind handbook covers not only current standardization efforts, but also anthropometry and optimal working postures, ergonomic human computer interactions, legal protection, occupational health and safety, and military human factor principles. While delineating the crucial role that standards and guidelines play in facilitating the design of advantageous working conditions to enhance individual performance, the handbook suggests ways to expand opportunities for global economic and ergonomic development.


This book features:

  • Guidance on the design of work systems including tasks, equipment, and workspaces as well as the work environment in relation to human capacities and limitations
  • Emphasis on important human factors and ergonomic standards that can be utilized to improve product and process to ensure efficiency and safety
  • A focus on quality control to ensure that standards are met throughout the worldwide market
