The inappropriate adaptation of the machinery to human properties and abilities may result both in physiological effects on the operator (e.g. muscle skeletal damage) resulting, for example, from inappropriate body posture, excessive or repeated exertion, and also in psycho-physiological effects such as mental overload or insufficient workload or stress, which may occur due to the operation, inspection or maintenance of the machine within the limits of its intended use. The submitted paper describes the use of advanced virtual reality technologies and risk management in machine development.
