Taylor & Francis, Jun 2, 1993 - Technology & Engineering - 800 pages
Each year public awareness of the importance of ergonomics for improving people's working conditions and home environment increases, as the application of ergonomics brings more and more tangible benefits to society at large. The Annual International Industrial Ergonomics and Safety Conference held in Copenhagen, Denmark in June 1993, sponsored by the International Foundation for Industrial Ergonomics and Safety Research brought together more than 200 ergonomic professionals from North America, Europe and Asia to present over 120 research papers, in a quest to share their knowledge of new developments in design for people and improving safety at work.; This volume is a reference on the variety of problems that industrial and office workers face today, and moreover, offers solutions in the drive towards the safe workplace.
