Written for those who are on the job but not necessarily professionally trained ergonomists, the principles and approaches detailed in this highly regarded guide have all been implemented in real-world workplace environments and proven successful in reducing the potential for occupational injury, increasing the number of people who can perform a job, and improving employee performance on the job. More than 150 clear and informative illustrations and tables help convey data and information in eight sections: * Ergonomics design philosophy * Human reliability and information transfer * Evaluation of job demands * Work design * Workplace design * Manual handling in occupational tasks * Equipment design * Environment
EASTMAN KODAK COMPANY, INC., is the global leader in imaging. Between 1911 and 1936, Kodak established a safety committee to evaluate workplace conditions, became a charter member of the National Safety Council, and opened a Medical Department and a Laboratory of Industrial Medicine and Toxicology. In 1960, Kodak formed an Ergonomics Department, which became a global force in ergonomic research, producing the first edition of Ergonomic Design for People at Work (Vol. 1: 1983, Vol. 2: 1986). Kodak is committed to maintaining its position as a leader in health, safety, and environmental performance, while driving continual improvements in operations and products.
