A workplace that operates 24/7 and has as its mission the smooth management of traffic flow across an entire state needs to be efficient and well-equipped.
At the NSW Transport Management Centre staff work across 2 dozen workstations with up to 8 screens on each, on a 24/7 rotating shift basis to monitor traffic circulation. Equipment and data need to be well positioned, in a space with maximum functionality and advanced ergonomics.
The Centre’s new base in Sydney’s Eveleigh was designed by Bluesky Design Group with ergonomics and efficiency in mind.
The gas-articulated monitor arms can carry up to 32kg of screen weight and allow up to 8 monitors on the individual workstations to be adjusted at the touch of a fingertip. In certain configurations, the screens can be moved together as an array.
Moveable workstations allow operators to stand when they wish, enhancing their flexibility and reducing fatigue from sedentary seating. A simple tilt of the monitor screen ensures visibility at any position.
“It is vital for our operators to have a cockpit view of their areas of operations,” says Joe Morabito, Manager of Traffic Operations.
“The advanced ergonomics of our workstation set up gives us optimal operational visibility; it simply means we can optimise our responses and provide better traffic management.”
