Formatted Abstract/Summary
Human Centred Design (HCD) is widely-used in the design of medical equipment, road vehicles and consumer products; however, it has received comparatively little recent attention in the mining industry. This paper describes an international collaboration that has the objective of increasing the uptake of HCD in mining. HCD for the mining industry is defined and key principles, processes and tools are outlined. Following this, the benefits of a HCD approach are outlined, examples of mining HCD successes are noted, and barriers towards greater uptake of this approach is summarised. A worked example of self-rescue technology to be developed using a HCD approach is also described. Further work in the area by means of a NIOSH-organized educational campaign and mining HCD roadmap is proposed.
