“New technology, new ways of work – do we also need new visual ergonomics practice?” at TAVRP, the Tasmanian Association of Rehabilitation Providers, Dark Side of Rehab 2 Symposium, Hobart, Australia.
The volume of technical information available in journals and on the Internet can be overwhelming.
Using my educational background and experience in optometry and ergonomics, I can synthesise knowledge within the scientific literature and present it in a format that you and your workers can easily understand.
Examples of projects I have assisted with include:
- Guidelines for setting up a computer for visual comfort.
- Advice for staff eye protection within a neonatal hospital unit.
- Appropriate lighting for administering colour vision tests.
- Occupational Optometry Guide (published by the Optometrists Association Australia) http://www.optometry.org.au/media/654738/occupational_optometry_guide.pdf
- Working comfortably in the consultation room – resources for practice owners/managers and resources for employees (Practice Notes published by Optometry Australia) (http://www.optometry.org.au/for-optometrists/professional-practice/practice-notes/)
Conferences + Seminars.
Here are the conferences and events that I will be speaking at in 2018:
“Visual Ergonomics in Control Rooms – An Example of Creativity in Practice” at the International Ergonomics Association Triennial Congress, Florence, Italy.
“Visual Ergonomics Lighting Workshop, at the International Ergonomics Association Triennial Congress, Florence, Italy.
