This project is about evaluating hand tools for the purpose of an object handling task. The purpose for this project is to evaluate hand tools that are usually use for handling hot objects. There were two types of hand tool evaluated, the tong (old design) and the proposed design. Those tools were evaluated in terms of ergonomics, usability, and aesthetics. A questionnaire was developed consisting of question related to ergonomics, usability and aesthetics. 50 respondents consisting of representative users of the tools were sampled. The result indicated that the tong (old design) was rated less visually appealing than the new proposed design. In addition, the new design was perceived to be better in terms of ergonomics and in terms of usability as well.
