Taylor and Francis, Ltd. is proud to announce the publication of Visual Ergonomics in the Workplace, written by Dr. Jeffrey Anshel. This easy-to-read and richly illustrated introduction into the role of the visual system in the workplace provides professional ergonomists, human resource professionals, as well as the casual computer user with an understanding of the relationship between good vision and the efficiency and safety of job performance.
Opening with a discussion of how the visual system works and a historical perspective of how it has evolved, this book then examines the specific interactions and functional vision of the eye in the workplace. The role of the VDT monitor is discussed, initially from the viewpoint of its regular interaction with the eye, and then in terms of the causes, detection, and treatment of VDT-related problems, including Computer Vision Syndrome.
A broader perspective of industrial vision is also addressed, including issues of eye safety and comfort. In the final part of the book a number of areas are discussed in which practical action may be taken to improve conditions for the eye in the workplace. These include environmental, physical, and visual factors which can be improved for VDT use and general eye care, many of which address international standards and legislation.
This reference is destined to become the classic introductory guide to Visual Ergonomics. It will be a valuable reference for professionals, an authoritative source for employees, and a one-stop introduction for students of vision in the workplace.
