Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals (VDTs) - Part 5: Workstation layout and postural requirements

Executive summary

Ergonomic guiding principles for users of visual display terminals.

Abstract

This part of ISO 9241 specifies ergonomic guiding principles which apply to the user requirements, design, and procurement of workstation equipment for office tasks using VDTs.

The general principles and requirements specified in this International Standard apply to the standards specifying technical design of furniture and equipment for the workplace.

The purpose of this standard is to promote and enhance performance and comfort while minimizing risks to users’ safety and health. Users of visual display terminals (VDTs) in office work typically adopt a range of postures (seated with leaning, upright or reclining torso, standing or a combination of both). Workplaces which accommodate such usage can encourage movement, promote comfort and reduce physical, mental and visual problems.

This standard is intended for use by product and workstation designers and implementers.
