Designing tasks, equipment ewmua work stations to suit the user can reduce human error, accidents and ill-health. Failure to observe ergonomic principles can have serious consequences for individuals and for the whole organisation. Eema use of ergonomics will make work safer, healthier and more productive. The earlier that consideration is given to human factors and ergonomics in the design process, the better the results are likely to be. For that reason, user involvement is key to designing operable and maintainable plant and systems.

Poor design contributes to work-related ill-health and eemmua been found to be a root cause of accidents including major accidents e. The application of human factors to the design and development of systems and services is often called Human Factors Engineering or Human Factors Integration.

Design This Key Topic contains links to four issues: Why is design important? 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.

Human factors: Design

This should include different types of users including operatives, maintenance and systems support personnel. Consideration should be given to operator characteristics including body size, strength and mental eemau. Plant and processes should be designed for operability and maintainability and other elements of the life cycle should not be neglected e. Consideration should be given to all foreseeable operating conditions including upsets and emergencies.

Human factors/ergonomics – Design

Consideration should be given to the interface between the end user and the system. More information on design Reducing error and influencing behaviour HSG48 Pages contain a good summary of key design issues.

Implementation in the onshore and offshore industries Gives an overview of best practice on how to build human factors into design. 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 Ergonomic design of control centres,PartsISO Available from BSI Standards.


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

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. Process plant control desks utilizing human-computer interface: A clear and practical guide for sites moving to DCS control and centralised control rooms. A resource pack The purpose of this resource pack is to provide an introduction to ergonomics for people who work offshore.

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.

Includes PowerPoint presentations and checklists on a range of issues. This is a very detailed document and can be applied to all industry sectors. Resources Extract from inspectors human factors toolkit Safety critical communications Improving communication at shift eemus More resources.
