Man, His Job, and the Environment: A Review and Annotated Bibliography of Selected Recent Research on Human Performance.
Mather, William G. III; And Others
Recent scientific literature was searched to review procedures currently being used to study human reactions to work and environmental stress. An ecological context is followed, considering task variables, environmental conditions, individual variations in subjects, and physiological, psychophysical, psychological, and sociological responses. The different types of research reviewed included analysis of on-the-job performance, simulations of real-life situations, laboratory experiments with human and nonhuman subjects, and clinical studies. A methodological program is suggested for measuring the expenditure of effort in work situations. (BH)
