Demonstrated Impact Award

For value and impact from ergonomics and human factors

What's made a difference?

This new Award is for work that's made a real difference in terms of the impact on people. This could be through improvements to a product, system, organisation or their workplace. If you know anyone who's work has made an impact, let's celebrate it!


  1. The Award is for any individual or group who has demonstrated the value and impact of ergonomics and human factors.
  2. The work must be a single project or programme that is of demonstrably high quality and impact.
  3. The impact would normally have occurred no more than two years prior to the nomination being made.
  4. The work activity should, at the very least, be of a quality that could be included in a publication of case studies such as ‘The Human Connection’.
  5. The nomination must include a maximum two-page description of the completed project, with clear indication of the impact that the work has had in a real-world context.


This year's winner

The first winner of our Demonstrated Impact Award is PPWD Consulting! Led by co-founder, Paul Davison, PPWD has demonstrated the reach and impact of a project firmly focused on establishing, supporting and maintaining a Just and Fair Culture for all employees of a major UK company. The reductions in operational incidents and millions of pounds in savings is only a small part of the overall impact of a 10-year project.
