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.
I can work with individuals and their managers to help solve visual ergonomics issues in the workplace. Some of the issues I have assisted with include:
- Discomfort associated with glare from artificial lighting and from windows.
- Headaches and visual discomfort when using visual displays.
- Modifications to work/workstations to cater for people with vision difficulties.
- Setting up visual display technology at workstations to enable good work flow.
- Arrangement of furniture and equipment within an office to enable good workflow and good lines of sight.
Here is an article describing how I assisted a lady with low vision (caused by keratoconus) to modify her workstation to improve work flow.
Long J (2011) Users of assistive technology also require assistance with ergonomics.
