Integration of ergonomics, human factors and occupational health and safety into design and management of pro-duction systems has for years been the major strategy for professional within the field. The traditional approach based on establishing ergonomic criteria’s to be integrated into other design criteria’s has not been successful when focusing on design and management of production. Other strategies have to be established. It is argued that they cannot be de-limited to activities within organizational boarders. A contextual approach has to be applied. The status of the research and debate within the field is examined as a opening for the discussions in the sessions on this subject.
