Ergowork has been in the business of assisting companies with ergonomic design and practical outcomes since 2000.
Our philosophy is to apply the latest knowledge about the human body, its structure, biomechanics and function, to the physical layout, equipment, furniture, lighting, sound, processes and computer interfaces of any workplace or project.
Providing Ergonomics Design & Consulting to the following industries:
We work with architects, project managers and engineers to assess, review and further develop their designs.
The human is the centre of design whether as user, operator, passive participant or observer. By designing to optimise human performance and well-being we can assist in achieving user centred design.
Recent projects have included human factors assessments and design changes in the New Generation Rollingstock trains for Queensland Rail and traffic control aspects, ergonomic design advice and specifications for the Singapore NSE Freeway and Tunnel Control Room, designing a retrofit full size sit-stand desktop for Queensland Ambulance call centres, mobile plant design reviews for BHP and other miners.
