Product Design

From manufacturing equipment to consumer products and information technology interfaces we ensure there is an optimal fit between the user’s requirements and the form and function of the product. Our knowledge of human behaviour, cognition, biomechanics, anatomy, physiological capacity, health and anthropometry (body dimensions) allows us to facilitate optimal design by supporting design teams in developing new products and redesigning existing products.

Built Environment

Through the application of ergonomics principles to the design of buildings, workplaces and public spaces we can maximise their efficiency, safety and accessibility. Our support can be provided to a broad range of environments from train control rooms to transport check in terminals, desktop office environments and shopping centres.

Systems and Processes

Consideration of ergonomics principles in the design of systems and processes can enhance their effectiveness, reduce errors and optimise efficiency. We provide a broad range of support including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Time and motion studies to identify task demands and staffing levels
  • Training needs analysis to ensure training is context specific and in line with best practice evidence
  • Physical and cognitive workload analysis to ensure task demands match user capabilities
  • Review and development of safety management systems such as risk management and safe operating procedures
