Auburn places two teams in the top five for Ergo competition
Brouha - Work Physiology Symposium
College Of Engineering - Safety Project
- Auburn University’s Occupational Safety & Ergonomics Program is proud to co-host (jointly with Auburn Engineers) the 50th annual Lucien Brouha Work Physiology Symposium at the Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center, April 25-27, 2012. This is a world class collaboration between industry and academia where influential and forward-thinking ergonomists and companies with high-performing and innovative ergonomics programs are invited to help create the research agenda that will shape the future of applied ergonomics.
- This project is headed by Dr. Richard Sesek and several graduate research assistants and safety program volunteers (currently, 5 students are actively involved on a regular basis). Dr. Sesek and the COE safety team help ensure the safety of engineering student project teams (e.g., Formula Racing, Mini Baja, Hover Craft, Concrete Canoe, among others) by providing safety training and resources. Pioneered by Dr. Jerry Davis, this project uses a series of training modules (both online and in-person) to deliver safety content to student team members and faculty. In addition, the team regularly tours the lab and design spaces of these student project teams to ensure that safe working conditions are maintained. Students learn valuable safety skills, gain experience in solving safety related issues, and help keep Auburn's student teams focused on safety.
