Where were you born?
What was one of your favourite work projects?
My most fulfilling professional projects include the evaluation of visual display terminal workstations at the Lester B. Pearson International Airport as well as involvement in larger-scale industrial projects, such as the review of an industrial roll forming line. As a result of this review, we had recommended reducing the height of the roll form hopper by three inches, decreasing the total distance the load would have to be lifted/lowered, yielding a reduced workload for employees responsible for handling these essential loads.
What do you do in your spare time?
I love dragon boating and founded the team at Brock University! I also practice Brazilian jiu-jitsu, go portaging every year, and am passionate about camping. My partner and I are on a mission to visit every provincial park in Ontario!
Sean Sabbatini is the newest member of the EWI Works team, having recently relocated from Ontario where he was the Association of Canadian Ergonomists Hamilton chapter leader. A former medical first responder, Sean is deeply invested in helping people, a drive that brought him into ergonomics. Sean, who minored in labour studies, strongly believes that if you can improve someone’s experience at work, you will improve their life. He would like to see ergonomic principles applied more strongly in health care environments, an area in which he feels workers badly need more supports.
