Título Human-computer interaction - The implications of EC Directive 90/270/EEC
Información bibliográfica June 1992, No.8, p.29-38. Bibl.ref.
Resumen This paper examines the implications for workers, employers and ergonomists of EC Directive 90/270/EEC (CIS 90-1069) on display screen equipment. The directive manages to combine aspects of health, safety and human performance within a single framework that can be used to address problems with the human use of computers. The main issues are the design and use of computer workstations, the protection of workers' eyes, the training of workers and the organisation of daily routine. The section on the design of the user/computer interface presents the greatest challenge to human factors research, and the paper focuses on each of the topics in this section. In conclusion, there are some important topics not covered by the directive that need to be addressed in future.
