The Aging Workforce and Impacts on Ergonomic Design

Presented by AEC GOErgo Conference Committee - OPEN TO ALL
Aug. 4 | 2 p.m. Eastern time

Presenter: Blake McGowan, C.P.E., managing consultant & ergonomics engineer, Humantech

For the younger worker, the physical capabilities for job duties are well-defined and have resulted in the publication of several design standards. Unfortunately, the physical capabilities of the older worker have not been studied as extensively, and therefore design standards for older workers are harder to find. The purpose of this presentation is to summarize the most relevant physiology research and the cutting-edge ergonomic design guidelines for the aging workforce.
