      User-Centred Design for the Physical and Workplace Environments

      “People ignore design that ignores people”    People thrive in environments that are designed to be in tune with their needs - called user-centred design. Productivity and safety are optimised. Motivation is high. Human performance pivots towards success. This two-day course introduces attendees to two areas where user-centred design is becoming essential for increasing productivity and improving safety. #1 Designing the physical environment The design of our physical workplaces, shared spaces, and infrastructure requires a dedicated focus to ensure productivity, efficiency, experience and safety. We examine how you can practically apply Human Factors principles to optimise the design of the physical environment. #2 Designing the working environment In workplaces, user-centred design can positively influence employee motivation, experience and performance, and improve customer experiences. We examine how you can apply Human Factors and user-centred design methods to diagnose workplace issues, design more engaging processes and systems, and implement initiatives more effectively. Tools to take away We have developed a set of simple tools that attendees can take-away and apply on any project or workplace. These include: Free access to our online user-impact assessment tool, Easy-U Toolkit to help assess user needs Toolkit to diagnose causes to organisational issues and uncover improvement opportunities Toolkit to understand and prevent human error This course is ideal for: Technical & engineering leaders Workplace design practitioners Designers Project Managers Safety professionals UX & CX specialists  This course will: Strengthen your insights into user behaviour, perception and experience.
