Short description: The subject concerns safety and comfortable conditions of work, both at professional and non-professional activities. The basic information about ergonomics are presented. The use of ergonomics at the designing and improvement of workplaces are shown. There are discussed the types of factors at the workplaces; the potential impact of these factors on human is also analyzed. Moreover, there are shown overall information about protection of intellectual property.
Full description: The scope of ergonomics as an interdisciplinary science; the history of ergonomics. The courses of ergonomic actions – corrective and conceptual actions. Ergonomic formation of workplaces; use of anthropometry in ergonomics. Physical and mental workload. Physical effort and energy expenditure of human organism. Assessment of energy expenditure at dynamic works, evaluation of workload at static works. Assessment of monotype. The basics of work safety. The types of factors; dangerous, harmful, onerous factors. The kinds of factors impact on human organism. Characteristic of selected dangerous factors; mechanical threats; fire and explosion, electrical shock, risk related with working at high.
