Description This paper reports on the results of a workshop held at an international conference, on the potential for ergonomics to contribute to the strategic goals of an organisation. Important issues raised by participants were: including the role of different business functions, the organisation’s context, the interaction of ergonomics with different business strategies, factors influencing the process of uptake of ergonomics, and the problem of lack of knowledge amongst engineers, managers and ergonomists. Results were generally supportive of the thesis that ergonomics can contribute to an organisation’s strategic goals beyond an exclusively health and safety focus.
