I am a certified NZ Human Factors Professional and Ergonomist in NZ, a Chartered Human Factors Professional and Fellow Member for the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF), a member of the HFESNZ (Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of New Zealand), and HFES (USA). I bring a scientific eye to safety, efficiency, and innovation through the application of human factors, which includes up to date research on human behaviour, cognition, and physiology. For example, for the purposes of accident prevention, risk management, investigation, and innovation, I would go beyond the application of policy and procedure, helping to design something that is workable, user friendly and SMART. For the purposes of capital investment of technology in the workplace, I would be working with engineers, designers, and project managers to maximise the challenges of ensuring the end user (the operators) has the best chance of using the technology to its full potential so that the project’s success can be fully realised. These examples are a few of the entire repertoire of expertise I have to offer and all under the umbrella of enhancing workplace safety, culture, and efficiency.
