Abstract
Ergonomists should be involved in the design of new safety devices to ensure that the proposed design will meet basic ergonomic design criteria for function and safety, as well as being acceptable to users. This paper describes an ergonomic design methodology employing a Likert-type questionnaire for evaluating user acceptance of adjustable ROPS designs. A Likert-type questionnaire is presented that can be used to probe for attitudes about the use of ROPS and possible indications that an adjustable ROPS would be more acceptable to farm tractor owners.
