During this project, a set of methods will be developed to evaluate gender and diversity dimensions for the ergonomics and usability of workplaces in safety-critical systems.

GenSiSys

Application of the methods in real situations – in road traffic as well as in the railway and an emergency call centre – will give qualitative findings relating to genderspecific requirements for workplaces and enable guidelines for the use of the methods to be prepared. At present, the field of vital systems is largely dominated by males but it will be possible in the future to use context-sensitive examinations of workplace ergonomics and software usability to ensure that diverse requirements are taken into account in the design of workplaces.
