APPLICATION OF ERGONOMICS IN SHIP DESIGN

influence of the technical degradation of an ageing fleet, the fact remains that the human factors are responsible for the majority of shipping accidents. Ship designers can play a role in reducing factors that may lead to fatigue and hence human errors in operation of ships and its equipment. Proper ergonomics design of ships is important from safety and comfort aspects. This paper reviews the application of ergonomics; particularly habitability standards in ship design and presents a case study of its implementation on a Malaysian patrol vessel. A patrol vessel was chosen and measurements were made and compared with standard ABS guidelines. The results shows that in most areas, the design of the patrol boat fails to comply with ergonomics design guidelines.
