Description


Human Performance Enhancement in High-Risk Environments: Insights, Developments, and Future Directions from Military Research takes the breakthrough work being done by the military on human performance issues and presents it in a way that is applicable to a wider audience of high-risk professions and industries, including police forces, fire fighters, the security industry, military contracting, and more.

Human Performance Enhancement in High-Risk Environments focuses on selection, training, safety, and interface design--essential steps in the process of putting the right people in the right positions with the right equipment to handle dangerous work. The book's 16 chapters are each written by military experts, emphasizing lessons learned from their own experiences and research, while highlighting the relevance of their findings to other domains in which highly trained personnel operate complex machinery with high consequences of error.
