On March 5, 2021, the 79th scientific conference section of the University of Latvia “Ergonomics and Work Environment, Industrial Engineering” took place in cooperation with the Latvian Ergonomics Society.
The conference section was held remotely and was attended by almost 80 participants.
Presenters at the conference presented practical and theoretical research results and topics were very actual. Participants gained experience in remote work opportunities in COVID-19 conditions, the role of the human factor in the management of organizations, ergonomic and engineering solutions in the modern work environment, as well as ergonomic and modern labor protection solutions, incl. on employment placement solutions, etc.
The conference section is organized to gain experience in scientific and practical research on the work environment, ergonomic risks in the work environment, which is closely related to the engineering sciences needed today. It will definitely be of interest to the future students of the bachelor’s study program “Industrial Engineering Management”, as well as the professional master’s study program “Work Environment Protection and Expertise”.
