So what is Human Factors? Let us think about how people get hurt. Typically, people hurt themselves when they: • Misuse a product, • A product is poorly designed for the population it is intended to be marketed to, • People purposefully or unconsciously do not heed instructions warnings or directions, • Manufacturers take short cuts and in either design or manufacture of their products, or • People do not do what they are supposed to do in the context of making sure places where people work, travel and live are safe. I bet most of you are thinking – so what is the new news here? The news is that when people get hurt there are underlying reasons. Reasons that if corrected will prevent future injuries. A poorly designed or maintained stairway will most probably cause an injury, and if an elderly person, the chances are quite high that a serious injury will occur. We can demonstrate how the dynamics associated with ascending or descending a poorly configured stairway c...
