Skip to content Skip to navigation. The earlier that consideration is eenua to human factors and ergonomics in the design process, the better the results are likely to be. The application of human factors to the design and development of systems and services is often called Human Factors Engineering or Human Factors Integration.

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. This should include different types of users including operatives, maintenance and systems support personnel.

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 The design of control rooms, plant and equipment can have 2011 large impact on human performance.

Covers design principles, control room arrangements and layout, workstations, displays, controls, interactions, temperature, lighting, acoustics, ventilation, and evaluation.


Failure to observe ergonomic principles eemia have serious consequences for individuals and for the whole organisation. Poor design contributes to work-related ill-health and has been found to emua a root cause of accidents including major accidents e. Why eemu design important?

HSE aims to reduce work-related death, injury and ill health. Implementation in the onshore and offshore industries Gives an overview of best practice on how to build human factors into design.

Consideration should be given to the interface between the end user and the system. 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.

Consideration should be given to all foreseeable operating conditions including upsets and emergencies. For that reason, user involvement is key to designing eemya and maintainable plant and systems. Plant and processes should be designed for operability and maintainability and other elements of the life cycle should not be neglected e.

Human factors/ergonomics – Design

Is this page useful? Key principles in design Equipment should be designed in accordance with key ergonomics standards including EN Parts 1 and 2. Users should be involved in the design process. Effective use of ergonomics will make work safer, healthier and more productive. More information on design Reducing error and influencing behaviour HSG48 Pages contain a good summary of key design issues. 2001

Human factors: Design

Designing tasks, equipment and work stations to suit the user can reduce human error, accidents and ill-health. Note that this approach has been developed in relation to large projects e. Consideration should be given to operator characteristics including body size, strength and mental capability. See also Case studies Articles.
