This third edition maintains the same content and structure as previous editions, but updates the material and references to account for recent developments in the field, including new research findings and anthropometric surveys. Chapters on Health and Safety and Ergonomics in the Office are substantially revised to include new research, techniques, and changes in legislation that have taken place in recent years. The book includes information on new and revised international standards and regulations; introduces new approaches to risk management and new assessment tools; and offers information on a variety of computer input devices, "hot desking," and children's use of computers.
