Título The operational demand evaluation checklist (ODEC) of workload for railway signalling
Información bibliográfica May 2010, Vol.41, No.4, p.393-402. Illus. 33 ref.
Resumen This study addressed the issue of the interpretation and assessment of mental workload of railway signallers, and in particular assessment of the load imposed by the work system. It highlights a framework created to direct the development of workload assessment tools capable of assessing the dimensions most relevant to the population being studied. A tool to capture the operational demands on the rail signaller was required to evaluate the load from the system they operated. The study describes the development of an Operational Demand Evaluation Checklist (ODEC), using techniques such as the repertory grid. The practical experience of the development, evaluation, live use and validation of ODEC is discussed and it is concluded that the approach could be adopted to interpret the concept of workload in other work domains.
