Topic Practical Ergonomics in Litigation
Ergonomists and safety professionals apply principles of Human Factors/Ergonomics (HF/E) to assess risk and prevent or minimize the occurrence of injuries. Forensics is a practice area through which those professionals can contribute to improving workplace safety, and safety in product and process design through the legal system. A review of the forensic expert witness process and the application of selected HF/E principles and tools in litigation will be discussed. Examples from actual litigation cases will be reviewed to demonstrate the role of HF/E in our judicial system and to provide practical professional insights to health and safety practitioners.
