            Ergonomics and Human Factors in action

            Defining Human Factors / Ergonomics

            Ergonomics (or human factors) is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.

            High level summary of HFESA paper “Opening a new hospital: The benefit of hindsight”

            Designing, building, and fitting out a hospital creates complexity, challenges, and opportunities. Early involvement and the right relationships will enable you to influence the functional design brief.

            Healthcare Ergonomics and Patient Safety

            Healthcare Ergonomics and Patient Safety

            Ergonomists play a role in improving patient safety and reducing the risk of injury to both staff and patients. I have been involved in the manual handling component of a patient risk assessment developed to address both patient and staff safety issues at a Sydney hospital.

            Who needs ergonomists?

            Who needs ergonomists?

            Well, most of us do.

            The intervention of ergonomists can be critical to safety and performance in a surprisingly wide range of fields and activities - at home, in an office, factory, construction site, hospital or shopping centre. Whether you are on public transport, in a car, flying a plane or in the depths of the ocean in a submarine, you travel more securely if ergonomists have been involved in planning the means of transport. Ergonomists promote the safety and well-being not only of people in the workforce, but also children and the elderly.

            But not too many people know what ergonomists do, so let’s look at this.

            Being a member of HFESA

            Joining the Human Factors & Ergonomics Society of Australia (HFESA) is an excellent opportunity to meet other human factors and ergonomic professionals.

            Ergonomics in the Future World: Perspectives from Australia and New Zealand

            Ergonomics in the Future World: Perspectives from Australia and New Zealand

            This peer-reviewed paper was published in WORK in December 2019. It documents a workshop discussion “Ergonomics in the Future World” that the HFESA and HFESNZ participated in at the IEA2018 Congress in Florence, Italy in August 2018. The workshop was initiated by the International Ergonomics Association (IEA) to evaluate the ergonomics state-of-play in various world regions. Australia and New Zealand had joint discussions under the banner “The Southern Cross” cluster. Read More

            Rating the Level of Distraction from In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems: An Australian Proof of Concept Study

            The Australian Automobile Association (AAA), the Victorian Department of Transport and the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) have joined forces to fund an Australian “proof-of-concept” study that will use an extended version of the distraction rating method developed by the University of Utah to assess and rate the distractibility of IVISs in a sample of Australian vehicles.

            Scraping and rinsing conveyor line

            The scraping and rinsing conveyor line in a busy Sydney hospital had a high input line section and conveyor height. This required kitchen staff to collect plates from various trolleys at waist height and then lift them up to chest height or above in order to feed the dirty plate onto the line.

            Electric Heat-In-Transit Tanker (bitumen trailer)

            Electric Heat-In-Transit Tanker (bitumen trailer)

            Bituminous products are classified as hazardous goods at elevated temperatures (AS1940:2004).  Depending upon the grade of bituminous product, the product may reach temperatures up to 200○C, with a heating rate of up to 40○C per hour. Bitumen, in hot or molten state, presents hazards to workers for thermal burns, fume and toxic vapour exposure, respiratory tract or eye irritation, and exposure to irritating emulsifiers.  Contained bitumen, under certain conditions, may be explosive.  The transit of bituminous products for roadworks projects can be a dangerous task with extensive drive times and challenging heating requirements using a gas furnace on-site.

            Ergonomists describe their work

            Practitioners of ergonomics and ergonomists contribute to the design and evaluation of tasks, jobs, products, environments and systems in order to make them compatible with the needs, abilities and limitations of people.
