Abstract

A study on the intervention of human factors engineering (known as ergonomics) on sustainable living based on biopsychological needs was conducted, taking samples of small housing inhabitants. In total, 90 participants were involved. Those who were living in small housings have a significant challenge of how to live comfortably given very limited space. The measurement of the quality of human life through WHOQOL-BREF (World Health Organization Quality of Life- BREF) and ergonomics-based usability were used to describe the current human well-being satisfaction, to propose the modified physical facilities, and to validate the proposed design and improvement. Regarding ergo-biopsychosocial approach, this study showed that there was a close relationship between the comfort of the physical environment and the satisfaction of biopsychosocial aspects of inhabitants. The implementation of more ergonomic multifunctional facilities and furniture has brought significant impact on the inhabitant’s quality of life. Hence, the principle of human needs to be more humanized was proven. Keywords: Biopsychosocial, ergonomics, sustainability, quality of life, small housing.
