train4work“Human-centred design is the solution to develop effective,efficient and productive work environments” Fee webinar 20th May 2021 11:00 – 12:00 (CET)

The characteristics of the spaces and workstations affect the development of the work in a very relevant way, from the point of view of the safety and health of the workers and also in relation to the effectiveness, efficiency and productivity in the tasks.

Human-centred work environments consider their characteristics and needs in the design and implementation to ensure the proper performance of tasks.

Under this approach, following the methodology of human-centered design and applying it to the development of work environments, within the framework of the “Train4HCwork” project an online course has been developed that includes the disciplines and key aspects to consider for the development of human-centered industrial environments.
