About these proceedings

Introduction

This book reports on the state of the art in physical ergonomics and addresses the design of products, processes, services, and work systems to ensure they are productive, safe, and enjoyable for people to use. The human body’s responses to physical and physiological work demands, strain injuries from repetition, vibration, force, and posture are the most common types of issues examined, along with their design implications. The book explores a wide range of topics in physical ergonomics, including the consequences of repetitive motion, materials handling, workplace safety, the usability of portable devices, design, working postures, and the work environment.

Mastering physical ergonomics and safety engineering concepts is fundamental to creating products and systems that people can safely and conveniently use, as well as avoiding stresses and minimizing the risk of accidents. Based on the AHFE 2018 Conference on Physical Ergonomics and Human Factors, held on July 21–25, 2018, in Orlando, Florida, USA, this book provides readers with a comprehensive perspective on the current challenges in physical ergonomics, which is a critical aspect in the design of any human-centered technological system, and for factors influencing human performance.

Reviews

“This book reports on the state of the art in physical ergonomics and addresses the design of processes, services, and work systems to ensure they are productive, safe, and enjoyable. …This book will appeal to researchers in these fields, but many of the topics will appeal to devotees of the activities that are studied. … This possibly could be the most interesting subject in the world.” (John T. Pierce, Doody's Book Reviews, June 28, 2019)
