Research

Dawn’s original interest in research commenced with her PhD studies at University of Wales, College Cardiff were she undertook a study into the assessment and analysis of personal metabolic rates of specific cohorts with special reference to the elderly and its associated implications for hypothermia. The work was stimulated by Dawn’s enthusiasm for ergonomics which developed naturally from her first degree and was later developed whilst working for the Ergonomics Unit at the University of Glamorgan, were her research focussed on the ergonomic issues of personal protective clothing.

Research projects involved evaluating the personal efficiency, effectiveness and suitability of personal protective equipment such as Chain saw trousers, Air fed dusthoods, chemical protective clothing and Safety visors. The work involved assessing individual responses to thermal loading, comfort, visibility, communication and mobility using both controlled field work and climatic chamber experiments. This work was undertaken on behalf of the Forestry Commission, the Health and Safety Executive, the Fire Service and clothing manufacturers or local industries.

Current research interest involve the inter-relationships between health and safety management and corporate social responsibility and the evaluation of health performance and productivity management.
