Despitecontemporaryadvancementsmadetosafetyandassistivetechnologieswithin the maritime industry, approximately 80% of the accidents are attributed to human errors. One of common causations of human errors are the result of distractions produced by increasing cognitive load and inadequate working environment, which impact seafarers’ decision-making abilities. Great efforts have been made to expand the technology-centred design over the last decade, however, ergonomic considerations of safety and comfort in seafarers’ workplace conditions and procedures were not improved. This paper aims to study the design criteria of an ergonomic interface for a human-centred design solution to address these ergonomic issues in vessel operations, in particular the physical ergonomic and anthropometric specifications. In addition, the project seeks the assistance of digital technology to upgrade the interface design of current workplace, and further, to facilitate the design of ‘a product of future ship bridge’ generated for bettering seafarers’ wellbeing in their workplace.
