This webinar is presented by Dr Stephven Kolose (CNZHFE, Senior Advisor HFE, WorkSafe) and Marion Edwin (CNZHFE, Manager HFE, WorkSafe).

The first part of the webinar provides a brief introduction to human factors/ergonomics, and its relationship with engineering. The second half will introduce, and discuss, the work conducted by the Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE) team at WorkSafe with a specific focus on musculoskeletal disorders and good work design.

The presentation will draw on their experiences as human factors researchers and practitioners to describe how HFE operates within a regulatory context.
