“When I Grow Up, I Want to Be an Ergonomist!”

You won’t hear many children say that! As a child, Nichola certainly didn’t have it in her head to follow an ambition to be doing what she does now.

It is going to become increasingly important however, that we inspire the next generation to step into the dynamic world of human factors. We have an opportunity to let future generations know how amazing this field is and that it’s not just a job; it’s a chance to make a lasting impact on how we interact with the world around us.

In a world where technology and innovation are shaping our lives at an unprecedented pace, the role of ergonomists and human factors experts has never been more vital.

If there any parents reading, here’s a few reasons to start talking about why ergonomics would be a worthwhile career path for your children:

Ergonomists are the architects of comfort, efficiency, and wellbeing. By designing environments, products, and systems that seamlessly integrate with human needs, we can enhance the quality of life for individuals across all walks of life.

You will be able to prevent health issues. From musculoskeletal disorders to eye strain, our work directly contributes to preventing a range of health issues that can arise from poorly designed spaces and equipment. Being an ergonomist means being a guardian of long-term health.

You will be an Innovator! In her work, Nichola thrives on understanding human behaviour and needs. As the world evolves, so do the challenges we face. Ergonomists play a pivotal role in driving innovation by designing solutions that adapt to these changes.

The principles of ergonomics align beautifully with sustainable practices. By creating designs that optimise resources and reduce waste, we contribute to a more eco-friendly future.

Inclusion is part of our DNA. From technology and healthcare to transportation and entertainment. We are helping create a more inclusive society by ensuring access through assessment, conversation and design.

We would love to hear from anyone in the sector who is working with schools introducing human factors to the workforce of tomorrow. Let’s nurture an interest in ergonomics and promote creative thinking within the space!
