Letter to the Clerk of the Committee from
Mr Reg Sell, Past President, the Ergonomics Society
On 7 January I sent you a page of evidence on
the Ergonomics Society for your Committee's inquiry into the Equal
Since I sent that page I have spoken to Ian
Gibson and briefly at the POST meeting on Monday to Guy Rickett
and so have a better idea regarding your concerns.
Ergonomics is central to the improvement of
quality of life at all ages and especially so for those who are
disabled or getting older. I have since consulted with some of
my colleagues in the Society who have a special interest in this
area to get their views on the Programme and discover that they
all know very little about it.
To what extent that is their fault and to what
extent the Programme's I do not know. One of them reckoned they
could find out more about your inquiry than about the Programme
I hope you find these comments useful.
