Stanton, Neville, Hedge, Alan, Brookhuis, Karel, Salas, Eduardo and Hendrick, Hal (2004) Handbook of human factors and ergonomics methods, Abingdon, GB, Chemical Rubber Company Press, 768pp.

Record type: Book


Ergonomics provides a group of powerful tools for the analysis of work, the design of usable products and the improvements of peoples' working environment. This handbook sets out in practical detail the main ergonomics, or human factors, methods along with practical examples. It presents approximately 100 methods, covering the assessment and measurement of physical, environmental, physiological, psychological, social and organizational phenomena. Each of the methods is set out in a very structured form to allow ready comparison covering: background, applications, procedure, a worked example, related methods, standards, approximate training and application times (based on the example), reliability and validity, costs, tools needed, related methods, and a short biography. A distinguished team of editors have drawn on international experts to cover each method.
