Core topics of the standardization roadmap
The role of people is a focal point of the standardization roadmap – and with it the consideration of their physical and mental capacity. The working environment of the future shall prevent accidents and physical or mental injuries in all circumstances. In addition, human-technology interactions can decrease physical strain, for instance, by using robots or exoskeletons. If they are improperly designed, however, they can also result in the opposite. Standards contribute to health protection in work design, for example. In 28 recommendations for action, the standardization roadmap describes where there is need for standardization and where, for instance, content should be more specific.
