Acmena Senior Human Factors Consultant, Keryn Pauley, is presenting at the Australian Psychological Society’s 14th annual Industrial and Organisational Psychology Conference.

Held at the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort on the Gold Coast on 7 – 9 July, the conference will focus on examining the ways in which Industrial Organisational Psychology can be used to enhance human performance in volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous work environments and lead the transformation of workplaces.

In her paper, ‘Human factors in systems engineering: Designing for the end user in rail’ Keryn will draw on her experience in integrating human factors programs into complex, large-scale rail projects to provide insight into how the industry applies organisational psychology concepts on the design of systems.

Focusing on the challenges of introducing new systems and tasks to an existing work force, Keryn will offer practical insight into how user-centred design principles can be used to ensure that systems satisfy user requirements and minimise the risk of human error.

“It is great to have the opportunity to showcase the methods we have been using on Cross River Rail to an academic audience and to hear about new organisational psychology research,” said Keryn. “It should be a great event and I am really looking forward to attending.”

Keryn will be presenting on Friday 8 July at 2pm (AEST). For the full conference program and more information on registration, visit:
