Abstract

The chapter covers the main design problems related to the layout and sizing of the environment, products and equipment, and the organization of the physical tasks required of operators and/or users, concerning the definition and compliance and, at the same time, the identification of the risks that can arise from the partial or total incompatibility between the characteristics and physical abilities of the users and the constraints imposed by the physical context and organization in which they operate.
