Abstract : Some aspects of the ergonomics of Visual Display Units (VDUs) are examined in this memorandum. Examination of specific vigilance research literature indicated that a serious deterioration of VDU user performance over time would be unlikely to occur when the users monitor and scan for critical information on a VDU screen for long periods of time. Nevertheless it is important to apply ergonomic principles to the choice of VDUs and to the design of the VDU visual environment and workstation in order to optimize the working conditions of the user.
