Bogomtale fra forlaget.

The broad and developing scope of ergonomics, the application of scientific knowledge to improve people's interaction with products, systems and environments, has been illustrated since the mid-1980s by the books which make up the Contemporary Ergonomics series. Presenting the proceedings of the Ergonomics Society's annual conference, the series embraces the wide range of topics covered by ergonomics. Chapters provide an insight into the current practice, present research findings and form a useful reference source. "Contemporary Ergonomics" should appeal to all those who have an interest in people's interactions with their working and leisure environment, including designers, manufacturing and production engineers, health and safety specialists, occupational, applied and industrial psychologists, and applied physiologists.
