Description

Presenting the Proceedings of the Ergonomics Society's annual conference, the series embraces the wide range of topics covered by ergonomics. Individual papers, peer reviewed for the first time, provide insight into current practice, present new research findings and form an invaluable reference source. A wide range of topics are covered in these proceedings, including Ergonomics, Human Factors and User-Centred Design. It also features related disciplines such as Psychology, Engineering and Physiology. Particular emphasis is given to the utility of these disciplines in improving health, safety, efficiency and productivity.


The 2009 Annual Conference features the following themes:


Accessibility; Complex Systems; Design; Hazards; Health Ergonomics and Patient Safety; Human Advisory; Human Error/Accidents; Human Factors Integration; Inspection; Methods and Tools; Primary Industries; Road Ergonomics; Schools; Strategic Ergonomics; Transport; Working People.


Contemporary Ergonomics will appeal to all those who are concerned with the interaction of people with their working and leisure environment - including designers, manufacturing and production engineers, health and safety specialists, occupational, applied and industrial psychologists and applied physiologists.
