Second Ergonomics International conference
May 2014, El-Aurassi Hotel,] Algiers
The Laboratory of Prevention and Ergonomics, University of Algiers
2, organize the second Ergonomics International Conference about:
“The Application of Ergonomics in developing countries“, On the 28 -
29 April 2014, at El-Aurassi Hotel, Algiers. The conference will be
open for all researchers, and interested specialists in various
disciplines and sectors to participate with their scientific
studies and field experiences.
Problematic of the conference:
This conference is considered as an extension of the first
conference held in 2012, about ergonomics and its role in prevention
and development in developing countries. Among its recommendations
was continuing to hold conferences on ergonomics due to its
importance in serving the national development on the one side and
to its importance in developing ergonomics in developing countries
on the other side. For this, came the second Ergonomics
International Conference, which will highlight and focus more on the
application of ergonomics in developing countries in various
sectors: industriy, agriculture, education, health, transport,
roads, services, sports, building, tourism and electronic field. As
it is known ergonomics is considered to have first been founded in
the industrial countries, which have benefited a lot from it,
especially in the matter of prevention and development. As for the
developing countries including Algeria, they are perhaps more in
need to take advantage of the principles of ergonomics. Especially
that Algeria is going through a lot of attempts at economic
development in order to join up with the industrially advanced
countries and Technology which typically require some necessary
modifications or compelling changes, both at the level of the
hardware or on the human side to adapt to what do exist in reality
under the stress and shortages of time and lack of possibilities,
along with the accompanied quick changes and the huge social
requirements dedicated by the past and increased in accumulation at
the present which may pledge evolution towards a better future.
Hence, the question is how feasible it is to apply the principles of
ergonomics in developing countries in general, and Algeria in
particular and how to benefit from the experiences of both the
developed and the developing countries and what are the means that
would enable Algeria to benefit from ergonomics as what is going on
in developed countries or at least to benefit from the application
of certain of its principles as a mean that can be a background to
the preventive culture that may have a positive and productive
impact on the economic, psycho-social, and health, whether at the
level of institutions or community.
