Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 1 July 2005
Status: active
Page Count: 28
ICS Code (Ergonomics): 13.180
scope:

This part of ISO 11064 gives environmental requirements as well as recommendations for the ergonomic design, upgrading or refurbishment of control rooms and other functional areas within the control suite.

The following aspects are covered:

- thermal environment (temperate regions);

- air quality;

- lighting environment;

- acoustic environment;

- vibration;

- aesthetics and interior design.

It is applicable to all types of control centres, including those for the process industry, transport and dispatching systems and emergency services. Although primarily intended for non-mobile control centres, many of its principles are relevant to mobile centres such as those found on ships, locomotives and aircraft.

It does not cover the influence of electromagnetic fields. Guidance on the influence of electromagnetic fields on the image quality of visual displays is given in ISO 9241-6.

This part of ISO 11064 is closely connected with ISO 11064-2 and ISO 11064-3, which describe the control room layout. It also relates to the design of equipment interfaces, which are influenced by environmental factors. It would be prudent for designers to also take account of the more general environmental requirements associated with display screen equipment use presented in ISO 9241-6 and ISO 9241-7.
