ergonomics-1280x499.jpg  Importance of control room ergonomics and human factors

Ergonomic control room design considerations are imperative when creating command and mission-critical spaces. 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 are incorporated into your design. Our team also provides alternative suggestions and solutions to maximize space and operational efficiency.

What Is the Importance of Ergonomics in the Workplace?

As part of the design process, Evans evaluates the room layout, operator interaction, traffic patterns, and sightlines to optimize workflow and prevent workplace injuries. Control room ergonomics is imperative for 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.

Evans design team also follows these guidelines for control room ergonomics:

  • International Organization for Standardization (ISO 11064);
  • Ergonomics of Human-System Interaction (ISO 9241-400);
  • Underwriters Laboratory (UL);
  • American National Standards Institute/Board of Standards Review (ANSI/BSR);
  • ANSI/HFES 100-2007 (Human Factors Engineering of Computer Workstations);
  • Canadian Standards Association (CSA); and
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

We are an active participant in the National Ergonomics Conference as well as being a Certified Ergonomics Education Provider for the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
