Visual Ergonomics in a virtual world: Lighting assessments conducted in cyberspace. International Ergonomics Association Triennial Congress. Virtual Conference, based in Vancouver, Canada. 14- 18 June 2021.
Do you need help translating visual ergonomics technical knowledge into practice? Do you require extra technical knowledge to help you develop a workplace visual ergonomics policy or guideline?
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/)
