This presentation will cover a range of projects undertaken by the Centre of Ergonomics and Human Factors, which focusses on bridging the research to practice gap. A key focus of most of the projects is the development of interventions to address employees’ physical and mental health using the APHIRM (A Participative Hazard Identification and Risk Management) toolkit.
Professor Jodi Oakman leads the Centre for Ergonomics and Human Factors at La Trobe University. She is an ergonomist and human factors specialist and worked in a range of industry settings before moving into academia. Her research program is focussed on working with organisations to optimise employees’ physical and mental health. She led the development of the APHIRM (A Participative Hazard Identification and Risk Management) Toolkit designed to support organisations in reducing stress related mental health and musculoskeletal disorders through using a participative approach. She currently leads projects in the areas of working at home and hybrid work and using systems thinking approaches to improve work related health. She recently led a longitudinal study examining the influence of working from home on employee health and well being (funded by Medibank and Optus).
The Judith Lumley Centre lunchtime seminars are free and open to all. Held on the first Wednesday of every month from February to December. These seminars showcase the work of national and international academics/researchers.
