THE INFLUENCE OF HUMAN FACTORS ON TRANSPORT DESIGN

Human factors in a transport system are discussed at the following levels: operator/controller, other operational personnel, people served, people affected and safety issues. There is a need for a higher degree of collaboration between practitioners in various disciplines in order to better application of knowledge in all of these levels. There is a strong case for setting up a national systems assessment unit to undertake total system studies of proposed new engineering systems. Resources available in Australia for human factors research and design advice are mentioned. /TRRL/
