WC 8.2.3 WORKING ENVIRONMENTS AND WC 8.2.4 ATC SYSTEMS

 

IFATCA Policy is:

When modifying airport infrastructure affecting ATM, local ATCOs shall be involved throughout its design, development and implementation.

Existing knowledge of human factors should be incorporated in design for new operational rooms and new ATC working positions and in modernisation of existing facilities.


See: WP 49 – Brussels 1979 and Resolution C6 – WP86 – Conchal 2019

IFATCA Policy is:

Rules of ergonomics should be respected in the design of work places and optimum microclimate conditions should be obtained or maintained.

Great attention should be paid to the lighting conditions of working positions. Indirect light, adjustable by zones, similar to daylight provoking neither reflections nor dazzling is very important. The luminosity should be adjustable at each working place and light sources be cleaned regularly and replaced if necessary.


See: WP 85 – Copenhagen 1978

IFATCA Policy is:

Research should be carried out in each country to determine the capacity of the ATC system and the workload to be carried by each air traffic controller.

Air traffic controllers should be provided with ATC equipment commensurate with their operational requirements so as to promote an optimum level of safety.

Within each country where civil air traffic normally predominates or where civil airspace is clearly defined a civilian ATC system is preferable.


See: WP 55 – Split 1983

IFATCA Policy is:

The physical working environment regarding control room temperature, lighting, relative humidity, adapted rest areas and facilities for eating and drinking must be designed so as to facilitate night shift demands.
