ERGONOMIC DESIGN OF WORKING POSITIONS ON MERCHANT-SHIP BRIDGES
An East German standard, TGL 32.604/02, covers the dimensioning of working positions where the operator stands. Together with TGL 22,315/1, which provides information on the anthropometric characteristics of men, it is here used by the Author (of the East German transportation medical service) as a basis for discussing and suggesting improvements, in the interests of both comfort and efficiency, to bridge control-postions. The improvements concerned are those that are practicable at the present time, rather than optimum solutions for the future. A bridge control-console of fairly recent design is used as an example to illustrate the dimensions and geometry, the layout of the instruments and controls, the use of colour, and other features that are desirable for a control position where the operator stands. Seated positions (these are covered by the standard TGL 32,604/01) are also discussed. Order from: BSRA as No. 48,457.
