BSR/HFES100 Human Factors Engineering of Computer Workstations

BSR/HFES100  Human Factors Engineering of Computer Workstations
Year Published:2002

After many years of extensive work, the draft revision of the HFES publication, American National Standard for Human Factors Engineering of Visual Display Terminal Workstations (ANSI/HFS100-1988) has been completed. BSR/HFES100, Human Factors Engineering of Computer Workstations, the revised successor to the 1988 U.S. standard, is undergoing canvass review in order to be considered as a new American national standard and is available to interested parties.


The current revision of the 1988 standard recognizes the increasing importance of computer workstations and the consequent benefits to users and employers from workstations that are ergonomically designed and integrated to enhance productivity and comfort. BSR/HFES100 guides designers on ways to accommodate variation both in the size of individual users and manner of usage. It also provides guidance to the individuals who must integrate individual workstation components designed for a wide variety of users into a system that fits the intended individual user.
