Unlock the key to improved Operator Performance, Safety, Health, and Comfort Using the Science of Ergonomics to Remove Physical and Behavioral Risk Factors in Your Control Room.
Ergonomics is defined as the science of refining the design of products to optimize them for human use.
How do your Operators interact with their environment and equipment? Are they alert? Are they comfortable? How is the lighting? Are they squinting to see their screen? These among many others are questions we don’t think to ask, however, they are the most important to have answers for – Your Operators, Plant, and Community depend on it.
Control room operators often experience sustained and intensive periods of seated work, monitoring and controlling hundreds of variables, alarms, and conditions on multiple displays. Studies show that this intense level of work inevitably leads to fatigue, reduced focus, stress, inadvertent inputs & actions, costly mistakes, and occupational injury & hazards – even over short time intervals.
While the study of ergonomics has received increased attention over the past couple of decades, many companies still often ignore or don’t adequately consider its contribution to performance, safety, health, job satisfaction, and morale. Ergonomic design studies save our clients money and time, and help your staff work more efficiently, more comfortably, and improve their long-term health using the science of ergonomics to remove physical and behavioral risk factors in the control room.
