2022 - Enabling An Ageing Workforce: Using design to innovate the workplace and empower older workers ︎

Australia’s population is ageing, but with enhanced health prospects and insufficient retirement funds, and industries impacted by a dwindling itinerate manual labour supply, workers will want, and may need, to remain in the workforce for longer. This research, Enabling an Ageing Workforce, recognises the issues facing the older worker across a range of different workplace contexts, This project investigates ageing, wellbeing, and workplace safeness within specific industries to identify areas of concern, opportunities for design intervention, and the proposal of future-focused design solutions.


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