Platform Statement

In this role, I will promote knowledge sharing from the rich diversity of ideas and experiences within the practice specialty. This means that each person can, in turn, share these new ideas with those they meet in their companies and industries. Our group members can demonstrate the technical research and acumen shared here to our clients and colleagues for practical application. In this way, we can improve the understanding and safety of others. There are also students pursuing non-ergonomics degrees whom we should encourage to take a course or self-study ergonomics, raising the awareness of ergonomics for those entering the workforce across all industries. Lastly, we have the opportunity to hear from professionals in other countries, who have fresh ideas and solutions we can apply here.
