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!
- The Award is for any individual or group who has demonstrated the value and impact of ergonomics and human factors.
- The work must be a single project or programme that is of demonstrably high quality and impact.
- The impact would normally have occurred no more than two years prior to the nomination being made.
- 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’.
- 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.
