Health, Safety and Ergonomics provides an account of the part ergonomics play in the improvement of working conditions. The book begins with the presentation of the advantages of ergonomics intervention. Subsequent chapters focus on the discussion of the principles, applications, and methods of ergonomics such as assessment and prediction of human reliability, hazard awareness and risk perception, and work-related musculo-skeletal disorders. Manufacturing automation, the cost of ergonomic limitations, and the direct benefit from ergonomics action on health and safety are elucidated as well. Ergonomics researchers, health and safety engineers, and production managers will find the book useful.
