Integral to Control Centres Australia is the control centre ergonomics team of Absolute Ergonomic Solutions and Jennifer Long Visual Ergonomics.

In a participatory, user centred approach, the team considers and integrates the human factors of the control centre environment:

  • Physical, postural and visual ergonomics;
  • Workflow and organisational ergonomics;
  • Physiological responses to noise, light, colour, etc;
  • Social responses, interactions and passive knowledge flow in critical and business-as-usual work activities.

The briefing and requirements gathering is undertaken according to the ISO 11064 suite of standards for the ergonomic design of control centres.
