Nuclear power plants are operated from a control room which is designed to help to maintain high standards of safety. To provide a functional work environment, the control bodies of the facility need to follow existing international rules. For instance, ISO 11064-2013, or “Ergonomic design of control centers,” which is consistently updated by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
This refers to important aspects of design, such as layout, lighting, colors, operator console, computer screen, furniture, and materials. Balancing comfort and functionality, a nuclear power plant control room design approach is human-centered.
