Introduction to Ergonomics by Robert Bridger

This core textbook has a strong cost-benefit focus and gives a comprehensive introduction to ergonomics as the study of the relationship between people and their working environment. It sets out the fundamental principles and key applications of the discipline.The reader needs only minimal scientific background knowledge, since the anatomical and physiological foundations of the subject are presented in the introductory chapters. The rest of the subject is explained in a range of social and technological contexts, including: anthropometry, biomechanics and workspace design; office work, manual handling and repetitive work; physical workload, fatigue and stress; physiological methods; environmental factors which affect productivity and health; human information processing and task performance; control and display design; cognitive ergonomics and human-machine interaction, including the internet; human error, accidents and safety; and organizational and psychosocial design of work.This new edition includes new questions at the end of each chapter, new sections on "Economic Benefits," more case studies to illustrate the text, and a glossary of scientific terms. An instructor's manual gives answers to the questions in the book and provides guidance on teaching and assessment. The text provides a new emphasis on the teaching of implementable skills, with more worked examples in the main text and in the manual, such as how to estimate spinal compression and compression tolerance limits, NIOSH equation, RASH predictions, DSE and manual handling evaluations. The book fits well with the requirements for the registration of ergonomists and provides a balanced introduction of ergonomics for new students and professionals.
