Expert have applied his knowledge of ergonomics and human factors to different industries and clients. Ergonomics is the application of scientific information about human beings, it is the user-centred design of information and equipment. Hence a user-centred approach is taken with all project work, be it development of a new product, evaluation of an existing workstation or assessment of a manual handling task. The user-centred approach results in products, systems and processes which match the users' requirements and capabilities.

Expert has undertaken work with leading companies to develop products which meet the requirements of the users. Understanding users' requirements is essential for developing successful products. From product concept through to prototype testing Expert can engage with users at the right times and using the right research techniques to gain clear insights into the product and its features. This user input can then feed directly into the product development process. This should ensure that the resulting product not only matches the user's requirements, but does it in such a way that it is a pleasure to use.

Expert's methodology includes the provision of a brief training session to the office workers, this covers the basics of office ergonomics, ensuring the workers understand the importance of good posture, good workstation layout, rest breaks etc. Expert can undertake Display Screen Equipment (DSE) workstation assessments for individuals.
