Webinars

Thank you for your interest in GOErgo's webinars. These free one-hour presentations by knowledgeable professionals and experienced volunteers provide deeper insight into topics and issues involving industrial engineers, human factors/ergonomics professionals, healthcare providers and related professions.

Most ergonomics programs focus on the analytical processes needed to conduct job evaluations, implement solutions, and prioritize and find budgets to fund ergo projects. What most people are not taught are the hidden strategies that make these initiatives move more smoothly.

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, CPE, 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.
