The handling of hazardous materials is becoming more and more of a major concern to everyone. As a result the laws and restrictions regulating the handling, storage, disposal etc., of these materials are increasing in complexity. These restrictions must be presented directly to the people that actually handle the material and the manner in which this is done will affect the reliability and efficiency of the process. The use of human factors design principles and extensive user input in the design of these job performance aids will greatly contribute to the understandability and usability of the end product-safe handling of hazardous materials.
