BS EN 16710-2:2016

Ergonomics methods. A methodology for work analysis to support design

Status : Current   Published : March 2016



This European Standard describes a procedure for analysing human activity in relation to specifying and refining the human component in the design or redesign of machinery and work systems.


The ergonomics methodology described in this European Standard could also be applied to the design or redesign of products and non-work systems.

This European Standard is intended to assist project leaders in implementing human and physical resources, methods and schedules as well as in preparing the documents necessary to meeting related requirements.

The ergonomics methodology described can be applied to all different stages in design projects from the earliest concept to the final “prototype” or “mock-up”, whatever the industrial field or sector.

The objective of this European Standard is to achieve a solution that takes into account as many situations as possible which all users - including operators, maintenance staff and installers, may encounter. This will ultimately allow improved usability of the machinery and more robust technical solutions, combined with significantly greater system resilience, user autonomy and accessibility.


Examples of the application of the methodology described in this European Standard are provided in Annex A.
