This session aims to promote learning and discussion about cognitive, organisational and physical ergonomics. It will focus on the application of the wide range of clinical expertise we possess, which together form human factors as a discipline. Specifically, how can we apply our specialist skills in areas such as anatomy, physiology, psychology, engineering, design, and OSH etc., in the workplace to optimise human performance? We will also look at human factors through the lens of Safety-II and effective risk management; along with two specific examples of cognitive and physical ergonomics.
