Contemporary Ergonomics And Human Factors 2015 PDF
Ergonomics and human factors is the discipline concerned with the application of scientifc knowledge to improve people’s interaction with products, systems and environments. This book presents the proceedings of the international conference, Ergonomics & Human Factors 2015, the 29th year in which a volume in the Contemporary Ergonomics series has appeared. In addition to being the leading event in the UK that features ergonomics and human factors across all sectors, this is also the annual conference of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF).
The scope and breadth of ergonomics and human factors continues to expand at a rapid pace. Contemporary Ergonomics and Human Factors 2015 reflects many of these developments and includes contributions covering the latest work in healthcare, transportation, defence, stress, manufacturing, design, and health and safety. There are also developments in data analytics, culture and complexity. This book also celebrates the long tradition of work in ergonomics and human factors which began with the formation of the Ergonomics Research Society in 1949 and culminated in 2015 with a Royal Charter. This has conferred recognition, at the highest level, of the uniqueness and value of our scientifc discipline and the preeminent role of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors in representing both the discipline and the profession.
As well as being of interest to mainstream ergonomists and human factors specialists, Contemporary Ergonomics and Human Factors 2015 will appeal to those concerned with people’s interaction with their working and leisure environment, including designers, manufacturing and production engineers, health and safety specialists, occupational, applied and industrial psychologists, and applied physiologists.
