    Abstract

    Objective: To develop a systematic approach for planning and writing and assessing information for use, that take the potential accident risks into account. Methods: Review of the requirements made on information for use. Review of the design process of three case products. Modelling the use of products by going trough the different phases of products life cycle. Identifying the potential accident risks of the case products with hazard lists, potential problem analysis (PPA) and failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA). Results: A generic checklist for planning and evaluating presentation and structure of information for use. An approach utilizing safety analysis and hazard lists for identifying the system specific information that must be considered in the information for use. Conclusion: The systematic framework and developed tools are proven to be useful in planning, writing and assessing information for use. When the potential accident risks of a product are assessed, it is easier to decide what information is relevant for the user and how it should be given.
