    Worldwide, the attention for health, innovation, and productivity is increasing. In all situations, humans interact with their environment, which is the concern of the field of ergonomics. The need for knowledge and its applications is large and this book contributes to knowledge development as well as its application. The content varies from the effect that a complete new office interior has on its occupants, to the most efficient design of gloves for those wearing them. It examines topics as diverse as the facilitation of human interaction through work place design, the effects of vibration, and the improvement of the latest virtual reality applications.

    This book is concerned with issues in Occupational, Social, and Organizational ergonomics. It contains a total of 90 articles. The authors of the articles represent 24 countries on five continents. These articles range from individual to multi-organizational perspectives in many different settings. Explicitly, the articles are organized according to the following themes:

    I: Participation and Collaboration
    II: Human Performance
    III: Health and Well-being
    IV: Working and Working Environment
    V: Environment and Living Environment
    VI: Virtual Environment
    VII: Macro-ergonomic Aspects
