Shipbuilding and design traditionally has a strong technical focus. To achieve optimal performance, a vessel should be designed with focus on human operator as well: without a crew to operate and maintain it, a ship will not sail at all. This site provides practical information about maritime Human Factors / Ergonomics: bridging the gap between operations and engineering.
This website applies to both seagoing and inland vessels, but also to stationary assets like drilling rigs, offshore topsides, and floating storage facilities, since they are usually built in a similar way. For Human Factors of waterway traffic control centres: have a look at www.ergos.eu/work-area/trafficcentres and www.control-centre-design.com. This concerns subjects like remote operation of bridges and locks, coast guarding stations, harbour control centres and river traffic centres.
