The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of New Zealand (HFESNZ) held a workshop at the Naval Museum in Devonport, Auckland on 24th June 2016 in order to promote the wide range of activities undertaken by ergonomists and human factors specialists in New Zealand.
The event was designed to encourage non-ergonomists to join in, and - being at the naval base- was called ‘All aboard’.
Professor Stephen Legg, Professor of Ergonomics and Director of the Centre for Ergonomics, Occupational Health and Safety, in the School of Public Health (pictured right) was one of the invited presenters.
His presentation outlined two developments in the School of Public Health:
and two research projects:
Workshop participants were pleased that Massey was now integrating Ergonomics into other qualifications and to note that the postgraduate options covered all of the educational elements required for national and international professional certification as an ergonomist. They also asked if there were any plans to create a stand-alone postgraduate Certificate in Ergonomics that would better suit the needs of mature health professionals.
Participants were also pleased that the research project on the ACC Moving and Handling People Guidelines complemented the postgraduate Certificate in Manual Handling being offered by AUT.
