Ergonomics of human-system interaction - Part 5: Workstation layout and postural requirements (ISO/FDIS 9241-5:2024); German version FprEN ISO 9241-5:2024


The purpose of this part of ISO 9241 is to promote and enhance performance and comfort while minimizing risks to users' safety and health. Users of interactive systems typically adopt a range of postures (seated with leaning, upright or reclining torso, standing or a combination of both). Workplaces which accommodate such usage can encourage movement, promote comfort and reduce physical, mental and visual problems. This part of ISO 9241 is intended for use by product and workstation designers and implementers.
