Warnings, Safety Instructions, Human Factors, and Ergonomics Publications by Miller & Lehto

James Miller & Mark Lehto have coauthored four books on the topic of warnings, instructions and labeling. Their first book Warnings: Volume 1: Fundamentals, Design and Evaluation Methodologies. may have been the first scholarly book totally devoted to the topic of warnings.

In addition Dr. Lehto was the original author of the 2007 edition of Introduction to Human Factors & Ergonomics for Engineers, a textbook used in college classrooms across the country. The revised edition was issued in 2012.



I founded Miller Engineering in 1980 with a mission to provide mechanical engineering, human factors, ergonomics, engineering safety, consumer research, and expert forensic services.

Our areas of expertise also now include warnings and safety instructions, hazardous chemicals and waste disposal, hospital/biomedical engineering, and safety in agricultural and construction. All this is from an engineering perspective in line with the philosophy of Professors Miller and Lehto who are the principals within the company and also affiliated with University engineering departments.

The company is known to be  very thorough in building, with our staff, the foundations necessary to suport whatever reports, opinions or testimony might arise from the various projects. Such thoroughness of course does not make us the least expensive, but our success on behalf of manufacturers, distributors, retailers, insurance companies and injured plaintiffs provides the justification.

We would be happy to discuss a potential project with you. (toll free 888-206-4394). All initial consultations with us are, of course, complimentary. Or we can provide you a paper or electronic copy of our corporate brochure and fee schedule via your email or telephone request.
