This textbook has been adapted for Stellenbosch University by Pearson from the text, Work Systems: The Methods, Measurement and Management of Work by Mikell P. Grover (2014). The customised version comprises selected chapters specific to the theory covered in the Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE) module of the Department of Industrial Psychology, Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences.

The carefully selected chapters provide undergraduate management science students with abridged easy-to-understand international theory on the otherwise broad and highly technical discipline of Human Factors and Ergonomics. Where applicable, the instructor needs to supplement this international Book with South African HFE theory and practice during teaching.

The book starts with a broad introductory overview of Human Factors and Ergonomics, which is further expanded upon into subsequent chapters of physical ergonomics, cognitive ergonomics and environmental ergonomics (the physical work environment). The book concludes with the all-encompassing important issue of Occupational Health and Safety.

The lecturer, Tendai Mariri, got involved in the project with Pearson as a way to provide more affordable textbooks to students. Stellenbosch University, the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences and the Department of Industrial Psychology fully supports this initiative as part of the University strategy towards networked and collaborative teaching and learning.
