Abstract

A design review of current mobile construction and mining equipment was undertaken using operator interviews, observations, an ergonomics audit checklist and a safe design workshop. The purpose was to identify any major ergonomics, usability or safety deficiencies associated with the equipment thatmay be considered in future design changes. Operators with different experience levels (novice, intermediate and expert) were the participants. This paper summarises the methods used and then outlines the key findings emerging, these include issues with the design of the cab workspace and the operator interface. The benefit of using operator-centred approaches for potentially improving the safe design of mobile construction and mining equipment is highlighted.
