Conference Paper
Full-text available
The visual environment has an impact on subjective strain and headaches. A visual ergonomics risk assessment method, VERAM, was used on 217 workplaces, and consists of both of a subjective questionnaire and an objective risk assessment, the latter risks are presented in this paper. The risk for daylight was assessed to be yellow (moderate risk) or...

Denna slutrapport presenterar resultaten av projektet Betydelsen av en optimerad synergonomi för ett hållbart kontrollrumsarbete. Projektet har genomförts under tre år mellan 2017 och 2020. Synergonomi handlar om samspelet mellan vår syn, ljuset och objektet vi tittar på. Dator- och bildskärmsarbete som ställer höga krav på syn och koncentration ö...
Article

Background: Working in front of computer screens is visually demanding and related to adverse eye symptoms. Occurrence of glare further increases visual fatigue. Objective: This paper presents results from an examination of visual ergonomics in control room environments at two Swedish process industries. Methods: Visual conditions were examine...
Article
Computer work is a visually demanding task associated with adverse eye symptoms. Frequent use of digital displays is known to cause a deterioration of the so-called binocular control. Direct glare further reduces the capacity for binocular coordination during computer work, leading to reduced reading ability and increased eye symptoms. The purpose...

This paper describes the results of the conceptual and practical strategy work performed by the Swedish Ergonomics and Human Factors Society (EHSS) today. The rationale of EHSS is to strengthen the quality of ergonomics/human factors knowledge and practice in Sweden and form a multidisciplinary platform across disciplines and professions for collab...
Chapter
This paper presents results from a case study at a Swedish paper mill. The study is part of a larger ongoing research project aiming to investigate visual ergonomics in control room environments. Visual conditions were measured and evaluated in five control rooms, and nine process operators answered questions about perceived workload and visual exp...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Knowledge and application of human factors and ergonomics (HFE) has significant potential as a useful tool and solution provider in the development, design and implementation of safe, efficient and sustainable artefacts and systems. Yet, it seems that this HFE knowledge is not utilised to its full potential. In a world of competing financial and co...
Article
Full-text available
Aim: Since an interaction between binocular disparity and the vergence system takes place in order to reduce retinal disparity, it is likely that vergence control, as measured with the near point of convergence (NPC), will be better if the target used for measurement has 3-dimensional (3-D) features in its most central parts. The aim of the presen...
Thesis
Full-text available
We spend more and more time working with computers. When we do so our central visual field lacks three-dimensional (3D) features and this leads to reduced binocular control and may result in eye-related symptoms. When other factors such as direct and indirect glare are added to a computer work situation further stress is placed on the visual system...
Article
In many western countries individuals will need to continue their professional careers beyond the current retirement age. This requires adaptation of the working conditions to compensate for age related visual changes. The aim of this paper is to compile and structure knowledge concerning age related changes in visual and non-visual functions among...
Article
Glare is a very common source of image degradation when performing computer work. Since reading is a task that is very sensitive to image degradation induced disability glare affects reading performance. Objective. To assess the effect of different glare conditions eye movements when reading on a computer screen. Glare conditions have an impact on...
Article
Objective: To introduce fixation disparity variance as an objective measure of visual discomfort. A higher variance in fixation disparity is indicative of more visual fatigue. This observation is based on the results from a study where we investigated how fixation disparity was affected by glare on a VDU. Participants. In total 16 subjects with no...
