Construction constitutes a challenge in terms of ergonomics as it requires work above shoulder level and below waist height. Furthermore, designers are required to consider ergonomics throughout all stages of projects. A range of client, designer, construction project manager, quantity surveyor, contractor, and material manufacturer / supplier interventions can complement construction ergonomics. Furthermore, the draft Ergonomics Regulations published for public comment on 27 January 2017, amplify the need for the construction industry to focus on ergonomics.

The Annual ACHASM Summit took place in October this year. It was very well attended and, from all accounts, thoroughly enjoyed by all participants.
The wide range of topics meant that there was something of interest for all participants. A very big thank you to all of our guest speakers & to our main sponsor, PERI. without whom the 2 days could not have been as successful as what they were.
From discovering hidden talents (thank-you Louis for all your IT support!), to hearing about all of the latest happenings in our Guest Speakers' areas of expertise, the 2 days proved to be an invaluable learning experience.
