Ergonomic considerations are imperative when designing command and mission-critical control rooms. Evans designers integrate the most up-to-date ergonomic standards and guidelines into all of our product designs; we perform an ergonomic review of each project. We work to determine specific features and standards that are essential to your industry or location and ensure they incorporate into your design. Our team also provides alternative suggestions and solutions to maximize space and operational efficiency.
Why the importance of Control Room Ergonomics matters
As part of the design process, Evans evaluates the room layout, operator interaction, traffic patterns, and sightlines to optimize workflow. The importance of control room ergonomics is imperative in optimal operator health. All our components reduce the most common ergonomic risk factors within the control room environment, such as repetitive tasks, awkward postures, and static forces.
Evans solutions are designed to meet all furniture industry standards, including Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer's Association (BIFMA) standards.
