Human factors when operating bridges and locks

Managers of the platform Water Meets Water (Dutch WOW) want to take into account the Human Factors when developing and realizing moving objects like bridges and locks. Intergo has, in cooperation with the platform, developed a Human Factors framework for the control of bridges and locks.

The framework shows the relationship between human, machine and organization. Human Factor related issues are mentioned which are important for a safe execution. 
For example, the design of the control screens, the use of camera images, and managing the processes.
The framework gives guidance to managers to identify and assess Human Factor aspects at their own managed objects.
