I have been on vacation so this is a little late, but hopefully it can help.
Here is a list of some of the best sources for human factor designs. Most of
this information is from the book "Engineering Design for Safety" by Thomas

SAE J833 - Human Physical Dimensions
ISO 3411 Human Physical Dimensions of Operators
MSIS - NASA STD 3000 - Man System Integration Standards
MIL-H-1472D - Human Engineering Design Criteria
MIL-H-46855B - Human Engineering Requirements
