Embracing the concepts of designing tasks and the environment for human comfort and satisfaction as well as for optimum performance, the book shows, in an easy and accessible fashion, the steps by which managers, workers and users can achieve an appropriate balance.
The authors have extensively revised this new edition, maintaining the size and flavour that made the first edition so successful, and replacing out-of-date material with new insights and raising the emphasis placed on computing-related ergonomics.
This renowned text is will be essential reading for all those people who need a basic, easy-to-follow guide to the subject of ergonomics and human factors working in a variety of occupations including psychology, design, engineering, management, health, occupational health and safety, human-computer interaction and ergonomics.
