Human factors/ergonomics – Design

This is a very detailed document and can be applied to all industry sectors. Designers should be following this standard for new control rooms, and it can usefully be referred to for upgrades and modifications to existing ones especially where there are known problems. Users should be involved in the design process.

The earlier that consideration is given to human factors and ergonomics in the design process, the better the results are likely to be. The design of control rooms, plant and equipment can have a large impact on human performance.

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 the risks. Note that this approach has been developed in relation to large projects e.
