In Ergonomics, The Whole Person Matters
Presented by AEC 2015/GOErgo - Open to All
Oct. 16 | 2 p.m. Eastern time
Presenter: Colin G. Drury, Ph.D., professor emeritus, University at Buffalo, SUNY
As ergonomics/human factors (E/HF) practitioners we have become very skilled in addressing a limited range of problems. Mainly we deal with the physical side of the person at work, reducing injuries and physical stresses on the workforce.
This webinar provides many examples of where the solution went beyond the physical effects on the workforce to find and address true underlying causes. It shows us how to use a broader range of the tools of our discipline to find better practical solutions to better fit the work to the whole person.
