Ergonomic Checkpoints for Agriculture
The IEA and ILO have reached an agreement in principle to develop and publish
the next book 'Ergonomics Checkpoints for Agriculture'. Dr. Kazu Kogi (Japan)
has invited potential authors to contribute to this project, being developed by
IEA and the International Labour Office (ILO) through its Occupational Safety and
Health Branch. This collaboration reflects the urgent need for ergonomic guideliness
in agriculture and would complement ILO's efforts to establish new standards in
safety and health in agriculture.
The target groups will include agricultural workers, farmers, farm managers,
extension workers and trainers, tool and machine designers, occupational safety
and health personnel and others concerned with ergonomic aspects of agriculture.
EQUID Design Process Guidelines, Version 2.0.
The EQUID Technical Committee (Ergonomic Quality in Design) of IEA created a document
containing requirements for ergonomic quality management in the design process for
products and services. This document has been reviewed by the IEA Federated Societies
and iteratively revised, resulting in the current Version 2.0. It was developed to
provide guidance on the term “Ergonomically Designed Product.” To legitimately use
this description, the product shall have been developed using a process that incorporates
ergonomics principles during the design process. This is referred in this document as the
“EQUID Design Process.”
