Human Factors & Ergonomics

  • Guidelines for Computer Workstation Design, by Michael Weisberg, of the Cognitive Science Branch of the USA National Library of Medicine, is a thorough review with good research. Dry, few diagrams.
  • Virginia Tech's Ergonomics Department home page.
  • University of Virginia's Office of Environmental Health and Safety provides ergonomics guidelines on such topics as computer workstations and stretch breaks, and even offer a quiz on your ergonomics knowledge. Filled with useful information, in a fun presentation style, with good use of colour images.
  • Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) home page.
  • ErgoWeb Home Page provides access to a variety of neat things, including case studies, basic physiology, standard questionnaires used for determining the amount and type of health risk posed by a particular task, and (most interestingly), and evaluation tool that will analyse the results of certain questionaires and give various measurements. It's not easy to find your way around, but there is lots to find.
