page 34 casts an eye over Australia’s current

urban design landscape. Although the idea

places the individual worker at the

epicentre of design consideration.

checklist for APA members looking to adopt

good work design principles within their own

workplace, in order to enhance employee

health, wellbeing and productivity.

Good work design is also the topic of focus

related questions facing occupational

health physiotherapists: are sit–stand desks
