The Research Center for Work Safety and Human Engineering at the Technion was established in 1974 as a joint, endeavor of the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management and the Faculty of Medicine, funded by a grant from the Committee for Research and Prevention in Occupational Safety and Health. It is a pivot of interdisciplinary research and teaching activities on topics of behavioral, physiological, medical and engineering aspects of safety at work, as well as general studies on human factors and ergonomics in engineering systems. It focuses on the capabilities and well being of human operators in the work environment.
