Abstract

Frequently used commands on the locomotive or railcar control panel need to be arranged mainly within the normal reach of the arm, using multi-purpose controllers for serving several important and frequently used functions by one hand, whenever possible. From the measured anthropometric measures in the central 90% from the sufficient and random sample of 50 engine drivers the range of normal and maximal reach of arm has been defined using statistical methods for the entire population in Croatia. The ranges of statistical anthrompometric measures of the engine drivers are the constitutional factors from the group “human factor”, and according to Fuller TCI model “task requirement – driver’s capability” affect the difficulty of the task during driving. The correlation dependence of lumbar moment Ml on the index of mass BMI has been proven in the hypothetically most unfavourable statistical seating working position, and based on the really measured statistical anthropometric measures
