Technical equipment should satisfy safety specifications and ergonomic requirements throughout its usable life. The ergonomic requirements applied in the design process should be perceived as an integral part of the body of requirements intended to ensure the safest possible operation of technical equipment. Ergonomic criteria highlight the necessity to adjust technical equipment to the needs of users so as to avert any identified hazards. The design safety requirements defined as essential should also be seen as guidelines for the development of conditions which ensure the effective performance of work. Such requirements must account for ergonomic criteria, which need to be seen as a mandatory. The article refers to the need to take into account ergonomic requirements when designing machines and technical devices. Examples of such requirements and the possibility of verifying their implementation are indicated.
