This standard specifies requirements to facilitate the application of ergonomics into ambulance design and describes a user-centered design (UCD) process for establishing additional ergonomic requirements, as necessary. The objective of applying ergonomics is to optimize overall system performance by ensuring human performance and safety requirements are balanced with engineering and design requirements. It is intended to be used by government and regulatory authorities, manufacturers and distributors of ambulances, distributors of equipment, paramedics, paramedic organizations, and other interested parties.
