Prof Stephen Legg BSc(Hons)

Professor of Ergonomics

School of Health Sciences

Stephen Legg is currently Professor of Ergonomics, Head of the Postgraduate Ergonomics Programme and Director of the Centre for Ergonomics Occupational Safety and Health in the School of Public Health, College of Health at Massey University. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Human factors a Ergonomics (UK) and a Certified New Zealand Ergonomist. 

 

Stephen's undergraduate degree was a BSc (Hons) in Human Biology, Surrey University, UK. His doctorate was in occupational respiratory mechanics at the Medical Research Council, UK.  He worked as an Applied Physiologist with the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence for twelve years. This included one year in the Exercise Physiology Division of the US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine and as a visiting senior lecturer to the Robens Institute of Industrial and Environmental Health and Safety at Surrey University.  He then  emigrated to New Zealand and worked as the New Zealand Defence Force Physiologist at the RNZAF Aviation Medicine unit for five years and for two years as the foundation manager of UniSports, the Centre for Sport Performance at Auckland University. He was President of the New Zealand Ergonomics Society (NZES) from 1995-1997, Convenor of the NZES Ergonomics in Schools Special Interest Group (1998-2001), NZES representative on the World Council of the International Ergonomics Association (IEA) (1998-2004), an Executive Committee member of IEA and Chair of the IEA Standing Committee for Professional Standards and Education (2003-6), and a visiting Professor to the Health Ergonomics Programme at Surrey University (2003-9).  

His teaching includes human environmental and exercise physiology, Sport Sciences, Advanced Research Methods, Ergonomics. At Auckland University he was responsible for initial formation of a Sports Science degree. At Massey University he developed and teaches papers in the Postgraduate Diploma in Ergonomics and Master of Ergonomics degree. He has supervised over 50 masters research students, 15 PhD students and examined 10 PhD theses.

His research has included human environmental applied industrial and military human factors, ergonomics and physiology, mechnisms for pulmonary dysfunction in coalminers, human limits in manual handling, work in the heat, cold water survival, sleep deprivation, mlitary and civil physical fitness standards, the effects of military physical training, human anthropometry and biodynamics (safety helmet design and "G' protection), sports science, sailing physiology and physical training for olympic competition, cycling safety, design of military boots and body armour.  His most recent research has centred on the identification of risk factors for musculoskeletal symptoms, the effects of mild hypoxia and of mild dehydration on complex cognitive (executive) function, especially in aviation and, occupational health and safety in small businesses. He has edited three journal special issues, reflcting a variety of research areas: Ergonomics in schools, Sailing Science (including medical aspects of sailing and the physiology of hiking).  He chaired the 2nd International  Conference on Understanding Small Enterprises (USE 2013), Nelson, New Zealand in  February 2013 and is currently thee Managing Guest Editor for two journal special issues: Safety Science and Small Enterprise Research. Stephen has published over 100 refereed papers in scientific journals.

30 years experience in industrial and military human factors and environmental physiology research, education and consultancy in UK, USA and New Zealand, including most recently sailing science, educational ergonomics, musculoskeletal discomfort at work and health and safety in small businesses.

Currently Professor of Ergonomics and Director of the Centre for Ergonomics, Occupational Safety and Health at Massey University, New Zealand, Fellow of the UK Institute for Ergonomics and Human Factors, Certified New Zealand Ergonomist. Formerly visiting Professor in Health Ergonomics at Surrey University, UK,   Executive Committee member and Chair for Professional Standards and Education of the International Ergonomics Association (2003-6).
