Ergonomics and efficiency are the key to an effective workplace at the NSW Transport Management Centre, with products from Uplifting Solutions.
January 31st, 2012
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.
Highly advanced IT and communication tools are integrated with advanced ergonomic workstations from Classic Resources and monitor arms from Uplifting Solutions.
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.”
