EBSF/D2.2.1 Appendix Part A: R&D Projects in the filed of ergonomics & bus driver workplace
A limited literature review has been performed in the area "ergonomics and bus driver workplace". The present and past focus has been identified and the references are grouped into nine groups. The list is far from complete but highlights in a separtate section "general issues" where references with substantial referecne lists in their own right are listed; the objective being that these references can be seen as natural starting points for any new R&D activity addressing bus driver workplace design and related problems or problem areas. The reference list as a whole has a bias towards stress (health), workload (fatigue) and seating (comfort) and related issues; almost 50% of the references listed cover this area; an eplanation being that many have thir origin in studies about the negative impacts of the working environment of a bus driver.
