What's going on
Ergonomics Product Design and Intervention Competition 2023 (ErgoLympic) is a biennial event organized by The Human Factors & Ergonomics Society Malaysia (HFEM) on the theme “Accelerating Human Factors and Ergonomics through Innovation and Intervention.” This event calls for greater participation from the RAGI community with the objectives:
- To raise awareness on the importance of human factors and ergonomics (HFE) in designing and developing artifacts for human use.
- To inculcate a spirit of healthy competition among Malaysians from all walks of life.
- To develop a culture of HFE innovations as a heritage for future generations.
The ErgoLympic 2023 is the 4th of its series. Past events have gathered participants from academia and industry as well as students of various disciplinary backgrounds. Academia participants included lecturers and students from both public and private universities in Malaysia, while participants from the industry came primarily from electronics, manufacturing, and automotive. A significant impact of ErgoLympic has been it attracted schoolchildren to take up the challenges alongside adult participants.
