2022 - Designing To Enable an Ageing Workforce ︎

de Vere, I., Dim, W., Sheahan., J.

E&PDE 2022

We detail a teaching and research project conducted in collaboration between the Safeness by Design initiative and the Innovation Centre of WorkSafe Victoria. An ageing workforce and a dwindling, itinerate manual labour supply have long-term implications for the commercial viability of industries that require sustained physical activities. We find that these trends drive two significant concerns for an ageing workforce: maintaining the health of increasingly older workers and dealing with the complications of their participation.


I acknowledge the peoples on whose lands I conduct my work, and respectfully acknowledge  Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
