Peter W. Johnson, PhD, MS

Professor, Env. and Occ. Health Sciences (Primary department)
Adjunct Professor, Industrial & Systems Engineering
Peter Johnson, PhD, is a Professor in the Occupational and Environmental Exposure Sciences program, specializing in ergonomics. He earned his Doctorate in Bioengineering from the University of California - Berkeley and has worked as a researcher at the National Institutes of Occupational Health in the United States, Sweden and Denmark. Dr. Johnson and his lab are nationally and internationally recognized for their work evaluating seating alternatives to reduce vehicle operator exposures to Whole Body Vibration (WBV). Currently, in cooperation with Northeastern University, the University of Connecticut, Oregon State University and Pontifical Xavierian University, his lab is conducting studies to evaluate ways to reduce WBV exposures in the semi-truck, bus and mining industries. Dr. Johnson is a member of the American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) Whole Body Vibration Committee and an American Delegate on the International Standards Organization (ISO) Whole Body Vibration Committee and participates in the annual standard meetings of these organizations. In addition, Dr. Johnson has worked with Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard and Logitech assisting with the design, and evaluation and introduction of new tablets, notebook computers, keyboards and mice, and with Steelcase on the design and introduction of new ergonomic office furniture.

Projects

1. Randomized Controlled Trial of a Whole Body Vibration Intervention in Truck Drivers
By collecting Whole Body Vibration exposure and low back pain symptoms in a group of truck drivers, the goal of this study is to conduct a two-year Randomized Control Trial comparing an industry standard air suspension seat (placebo) to a new technology active suspension seat (intervention). Funding: NIOSH

2. The Effects of an Anti-Vibration Truck Cab Mattress on Team Truck Drivers' Sleep
The goal of this demonstration project is to test and compare conventional and enhanced memory foam mattress in team truck drivers and whether there are any differential effects on driver sleep measured with actigraphy, driver fatigue measured with the Psychomotor Vigilance Task and heavy breaking events via in-cab monitoring. Funding: Washington State Safety and Health Intervention Project (SHIP)

3. Truck Drivers and Vibration-Damping Seats: An Evaluation of Technology Choices
The goal of this project is to test five different commercially available truck driver seats for attenuating exposures to whole body vibration and determine whether there are any differential effects on driver response times using the Psychomotor Vigilance Task and standing balance. Funding: WorkSafe BC

4. Whole Body Vibration Exposure and Injury Prevention of Heavy Equipment Operators in Open Pit Coal Mines
The goal of this project is to measure whole body vibration (WBV) exposures in mining equipment and then use the WBV exposure data and a 1200 employee multi-year injury database to determine whether there are any associations between equipment operation, WBV exposures and low back injuries. Funding: Alpha Foundation

5. Ergonomic Evaluation of Emerging Technologies in the Tree Fruit Industry
The goal of this study is to evaluate the physical exposures associated with the implementation of mobile platforms in apple harvesting activities in Washington state. Funding: NIOSH

6. Evaluating Emerging Computer Input Device Technologies
Evaluating the physical impacts, performance and subjective preference of emerging computer input device technologies such as tablets, touch interfaces and ultra-thin notebook keyboards. Also evaluating the design requirements to make stature proportional computer input devices for smaller statured users such as children and women. Funding: Industry
