About

Organiser for Working Life (OWL) contains tools to help workers of all ages to think about healthy working, ergonomics and workplace design. It is based on research conducted at Loughborough University as part of the ‘Working Lateproject.

We believe that industry can learn from older experienced workers about good design in terms of encouraging healthy behaviours, and therefore healthy ageing. Indeed, active participation from workers in diverse industries has been central to developing and guiding the research and has directly informed the development of this online resource.

This web resource was developed by a team led by Dr Diane Gyi, a Reader in Health Ergonomics and Design at Loughborough University. See Team information for further details.
