Prof Roger Haslam wins IEA award

Professor Roger Haslam is a lecturer in Ergonomics at the Design School was nominated for the award by the UK Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (CIEHF).

Professor Haslam collected his award last month at the Congress in Florence, Italy, which took place 26-30 August and was also attended by a number of researchers from the University.

Roger commented “I have a great deal of respect for the work of the IEA and am honoured to receive this award." He celebrated his achievement with his fellow research colleagues and members of staff from Loughborough Design School, including Professor Cees De Bont, who is the Dean of the School.

The honour recognises an individual’s outstanding contributions to the development and promotion of the IEA, through their research, activism and leadership methods. Roger is believed to be the first recipient from the UK in over 30 years.  His research includes working alongside colleague Professor Alistair Gibb investigating health and safety in the construction industry, which has largely focused on a long-term study into the initiatives on the Tideway project in London which is due for completion in 2023. Professor Haslam has been focusing on how the leadership, policy and practice have protected workers and what lessons can be learnt from the project.

Congratulations Roger - well deserved recognition for your research work.
