Designing and Implementing an Ergonomics Inventory to Improve Management of Human Factors Programs.
Johnson, Kenneth A.
Self-report ergometric inventories can provide valuable information to employers and can serve as a means of intervention to improve employee attributes. Based on the science of ergonomics (a science that studies the natural laws of work in order to maximize human efficiency in job performance), such an inventory focuses on the interaction of the individual with the workplace. Thus, an effective ergonomics inventory must comprise questions concerning employees' personal characteristics as well as the tasks, tools, and work space of their jobs. (This paper consists of a 51-item sample ergonomics self-report inventory, a discussion of the pros and cons of administering self-report inventories, an analysis of factors affecting job performance, and a brief description of the procedures for designing such an inventory.)
