Ergonomics at work
Looks at the communication links between people and their man-made environment such as workplaces, controls, displays, etc., and considers features of this environment which can affect performance, comfort and safety. It is used in many courses on ergonomics, management and safety. Although the structure of the Second Edition remains the same as in the first, a number of chapters have been extensively rewritten and expanded. More information has been added relating ergonomics concepts to modern technology as well as to basic aspects of body mobility. Features of the environment have been covered in more depth and the list of references has been lengthened.
