||Development of anthropometric work environment for Taiwanese workers

||First-stage extended results of an anthropometry survey project in Taiwan are presented. The purpose of the project was to construct a static and dynamic anthropometric database for local workers, for use by engineers involved in designing work-related facilities. Based on the worker population structure in Taiwan's main industries, 1,200 subjects were measured. The database consists of data for 266 static-body dimensions and 42 dynamic ranges of motion. The statistical data are presented in a conventional paper hardcopy handbook and a computerized on-line searching system. It is expected that the data can be used by engineers to create ergonomically designed equipment, devices, and work environment for local workers, thereby ensuring a safe work environment. Based on such data, the primary dimensions for work environment design applications are also proposed. Topics: anthropometry; body mechanics; computerized data bases; ergonomic evaluation; ergonomics; sex-linked differences; Taiwan (China); workplace design.
