Call for Volunteers - Consensus Review Committee for ANSI/HFES 100 Committee

The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) is seeking interested individuals to participate in a consensus review committee for the revised American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Human Factors and Ergonomics Society ANSI/HFES 100 committee. The committee will be asked to review the draft standard and to vote on acceptance. The committee will be asked to complete their review and vote within 60 days of formation of the committee. A 60-day public review and comment period will run concurrently with the consensus committee review.

The standard is being developed to provide guidance for the design of fixed, or desktop, computer workstations. Research indicates that, although mobile computing devices are used extensively, desktop computer workstations continue to be used intensively.

As an ANSI-accredited standards developer, HFES is required to ensure that the consensus committee is balanced and that no one interest category dominates the group. HFES procedural guidelines for standards development include, but are not limited to, these interest categories: Manufacturers, Distributors, Engineering firms, Designers, and Customers. The consensus committee will be restricted to approximately 12 persons.

Please complete the short form at the link below if you are interested in being considered for membership in the consensus committee. Questions may be directed to Tom Albin or Steve Kemp at    

Please note that anyone may offer comments on the draft standard without being a consensus committee member; ANSI and HFES standards procedures require equal consideration of those comments.
