Update from Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia (HFESA) August 2018

At present the HFESA has a strong focus on the organisation of the annual conference https://www.ergonomics.org.au/conference-information/hfesa-2017-conference which is to be held in Perth, a city on the west coast of Australia, from 26-28 November, 2018. This year’s theme is “The many faces of Human Factors & Ergonomics”. The keynote speakers include Dr Rachelle Ornan from Boeing, Professor Tim Bentley from Massey University NZ, and Mr Jim Knowles who is giving the Ron Cumming Memorial Lecture. There will be a mix of lecture, workshops and sites visits and a strong focus on supporting students to be in attendance and to also be involved. Any of you who would like to attend this conference would be warmly welcomed!
Recently, to further support student participation in the Society, we have created an ex officio student position on our Board. The aim of this position is to bring the Board closer to our students perspectives and needs. We also have an active student special interest group linking into this Board position. We know that our future rests with our student members.
Finally, the HFESA has been formally involved with other professional societies representing occupational health and safety professionals in Australia for the last six years. Recently this has led to a survey of occupational health and safety professionals across Australia on their preceptions on the future of work. The results of this survey were released in August 2018. It is attached for your information.
