FOCUS: The importance of ergonomics in the control room. The ISO 11064 standard.
Professionals working in a control room all know how important it is to maintain constant attention to the systems they monitor. This is why ergonomics should not be neglected.
Ergonomics is a multi-faceted issue, as it can have an impact on the health and well-being of operators, as well as on the productivity and quality of operations.
To improve the ergonomics of a control room, it is important to take into account several aspects, such as:
- Furniture should be adjustable to suit the body shape of each operator.
- Screens should be placed at an optimal height and distance from the eyes to avoid excessive eye strain.
- Seats should be comfortable and properly support the spine.
- The HMI (Human Machine Interface) should be carefully designed. For example, the layout of the displayed content or the mouse keyboards (KVM tools) must be easily accessible. Their functionality must be intuitive to avoid confusion or misuse.
A good starting point in designing an ergonomic control room is to follow the guidelines of ISO 11064. It sets out design principles for the ergonomics of workspaces, including the layout of screens, the height of workstations, the quality of seating, the accessibility of equipment and the human-machine interfaces.
