New book

Jodi has been involved in a book that has just been released:


Psychosocial Factors at Work in the Asia Pacific

The concept of the book emerged from the expert meetings of the Asia Pacific Academy for Psychosocial Factors at Work, of which the Centre for Ergonomics and Human Factors at La Trobe has been attending. One of the aims of the book was to gain a better understanding of workplace psychosocial issues across the region- the book is certainly an eye opener in this respect. Another aim was to increase academic links across the region.The book features inputs from 30 academics with 26 from the Asia Pacific (Japan (6), Australia (11), China (1), South Korea (1), Malaysia (6), and New Zealand (1)). There are additional international contributions from Germany (3) and Belgium (1).

Welcome to the Ergonomics, Safety and Health blog


Welcome to the Ergonomics, Safety and Health blog. We hope that this site develops as a virtual space of research, teaching and practice for ergonomics in Australia. The ESH blog will provide a forum for communication and construction of knowledge. As the blog unfolds we hope that content will be driven by the wider ergonomics community. The blog will also be a useful tool within the La Trobe Ergonomics, Safety and Health teaching program.

We invite you to submit content for the blog.

Please leave us a comment and we’ll be in touch.
