WORK FROM HOME: HUMAN FACTORS/ ERGONOMICS CONSIDERATIONS

Date/Time
Date(s) - 05/05/2021
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, an abrupt shift in the nature of work systems across the globe has occurred with a dramatic increase in the number of people who are working remotely from their homes. Work From Home

(WFH) is the “new way of working,” in which employees’ homes have become their workplaces. Attention to human factors/ergonomics (HF/E) issues from both micro- (individual workers) and macro- (organization and environment) perspectives is essential to support and protect workers, to ensure worker wellbeing and performance, and to achieve the benefits of telework.
During this webinar the human factors/ergonomics considerations regarding Work From Home will be discussed by a panel of international HF/E experts. Their global perspectives and experiences in examining and integrating HF/E principles into safe and healthy practices of remote work will be presented.
