Human factors methodology for stress evaluation in machine-paced jobs: some NIOSH experiences.
Proceedings of the International Conference on Machine-Pacing and Occupational Stress. Salvendy G, ed., Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 1981 Jun; :196-206
A human factors methodology, presented at the 1981 International Conference on Machine Pacing and Occupational Stress, is described. Procedures for examined machine paced job demands and stress based upon the research experience of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health are discussed. The use of questionnaire surveys for psychological job stressors, on-site observations with checklists, and job task analysis and modelling to isolate elements of biomechanical stress is evaluated.
