Overview

Focuses on selected issues in the area of occupational macroergonomics, with an emphasis on design and management of industrial work systems Reviews the quality and cost benefit issues in ergonomics management Describes methodology and usability issues in the user-center design Covers ergonomics in service systems including healthcare, package/delivery industry, construction industry, and air traffic management Occupational Ergonomics: Design and Management of Work Systems comprises chapters carefully selected from CRC's bestselling Occupational Ergonomics Handbook, logically organized for optimum convenience and thoughtfully priced to fit every budget. This book presents 34 chapters addressing selected issues in the area of occupational macroergonomics, with an emphasis on design and management of industrial work systems. Part I focuses on organizational design. Part II is concerned with environmental design, including protection against noise and vibration, thermal stress, and usability of various work/shift plans. Part III discusses applications of ergonomics, principles of work design in the office environment and manufacturing and service industries.
