About The Product

The completely revised edition of the leading reference on human factors and ergonomics

The field of human factors and ergonomics has developed and broadened considerably since its inception more than sixty years ago, and no single book has done more to help proliferate its importance than the Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics.

Winner of the Institute of Industrial Engineers Joint Publishers Book-of-the-Year Award, this thoroughly revised Third Edition of Gavriel Salvendy's seminal work compiles the research of 109 of the world's top thinkers and practitioners in one volume. All new chapters feature theoretically based and practically oriented material-supported by numerous case studies, examples, figures, and tables-to be useful to both practitioners and researchers.

A value-packed read for all human factors and ergonomics specialists, engineers, industrial hygienists, safety engineers, and human-computer interaction (HCI) specialists, this Third Edition covers such new topics as:
* Cultural ergonomics
* Virtual environments
* Human factors and information security
* Usability evaluation and testing
* Design of e-business Web sites
* Augmented cognition in HCI
* Design for those with disabilities
* Design for children
* Human factors and ergonomics standards
* Human factors and ergonomics in transportation
* And much more!
