And in this updated and expanded version of the original landmark work, you'll find the research information necessary to create designs that better accommodate human need/5(63). Human factors techniques can be used to inform the design of a home environment to ensure that lighting, layout, and space are adequate for the tasks being performed or the design of a neighborhood to help ensure that there is adequate and effective signage. Human factors approaches are also relevant to the design of jobs for health care workers.
