Workplace design & healthy ageing

Workplace design has an impact on health. Healthy behaviours can be encouraged in workers of all ages by more thoughtful design at work.

With this in mind we strongly believe that industry can learn from experienced workers to generate ideas to improve design and healthy ageing at work. In total over 200 design ideas were captured by the research team from interviews, observations and focus groups, using the resource tools in the body at work section; over half were deemed as low/no cost ideas.

Design ideas and solutions were created with these workers in four specific task areas and examples are presented following the links below. We hope that their personal stories inspire you.
