October is designated as National Ergonomics Month by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES). It is a time to generate awareness and give recognition to those who dedicate their livelihoods to improve the safety, performance, and comfort of humans through research, field studies, focus groups, trainings, and workshops. A number of notable conferences are taking place this month in North America and Europe to share the results of these efforts with the public.
- September 27 – October 1: HFES 54th Annual Meeting, San Francisco, CA
- October 4-7, 2010 – ACE 41st Annual Conference, Kelowna, BC
- October 13-15, 2010 – HFES Europe Chapter Annual Conference, Berlin, Germany
