Closing the Gap: Where to Find and Access New Ergonomics Research

Presenter: Gary Allread, Ph.D., program director, Ohio State's Institute for Ergonomics

Researchers continue to publish important advances in ergonomics, but these are usually in scientific journals that are difficult or costly to access for those not in academia. This can be frustrating to ergonomics practitioners, who are either unaware of this new knowledge or unable to read about the specifics. This presentation will provide guidance for bridging this space between the research and applications communities. Resources and strategies for learning about new ergonomics knowledge will be provided.

Learning objectives:

  1. Resources for finding newly published ergonomics research studies
  2. Information that can help improve workplace safety
  3. Better understanding of where the science of ergonomics is heading
