The Workspace Design approach: How users and OHS consultants can transform design scripts

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    The Danish Workspace Design (WSD) research program is aimed to develop and trial a potential new concept for ergonomists and other workplace consultants who are to engage in socio-technical design processes. The objective of this paper is to report on the trial of the workspace design concept in a case involving the design and implementation of a new mixing technology in an industrial plant. The case showed how the WSD concept can contribute to an engineering design process. The WSD team took the role as workspace designer and by the participatory workshops achieved an impact on the technology project. It was possible to transform the script which the design engineers were sticking to in the early phases of the design process.
