Ergonomics Engineering’s Environmental Ergonomics services provide clients with physical assessments to ensure compliance with occupational health and safety legislation. Ergonomics Engineering has the following Environmental Ergonomics capabilities:

Ergonomics Engineering specialises in the evaluation of the following noise aspects:

  1. Ambient noise levels (offices, factories, outside)
  2. Human exposure to noise
  3. Vehicle interior noise.

Ergonomics Engineering evaluates human exposure to whole-body vibration (WBV) using the method defined in International Standard ISO 2631-1:1997.

The measurement and analysis of whole-body vibration allows for the:

  1. Identification of where there may be a health or safety risk for which whole body vibration is either the cause or a contributory factor.
  2. Measurement of human operators’ exposure to WBV and allows the comparison with the exposure action value and exposure limit value.
  3. Identification of the available risk controls.

Ergonomics Engineering specialises in the measurement, analysis and interpretation of the following temperature aspects:

  1. Ambient temperature: inside the workplace, inside a vehicle or outside in the environment.
  2. Surface temperatures: to prevent injury due to excessive temperature retained or generated by an item during usage.

Ergonomics Engineering specialises in the measurement, analysis and interpretation of the following lighting aspects:

  1. Ambient and task illuminance: a measure of the amount of light hitting a surface
  2. Luminance: the brightness of a point on a surface that is reflecting light.
  3. Glare: the difficulty of seeing in the presence of bright light such as direct or reflected sunlight or artificial light such as car headlamps at night.

The measurement and analysis of lighting will:

  • Quantify and identify if the ambient lighting inside the work areas is sufficient for the type of task(s) being performed.
  • Quantify the glare or reflection experienced by the human operator at his/her workstation.
  • Provide recommendations for lighting improvement within the workplace
  • Ensure lighting complies with recognised standards and legislation.
  • Determine the impact of poor lighting on the human operator.
