Some less or more well-organised thoughts

Every worker deserves the right tools

I’ve just seen sub-heading ‘Every worker deserves the right tools’ on a a flyer for an OU colleague’s (Clara Mancini) work. I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment. Clara is doing some important work on helping ‘working animals’ (e.g. dogs that are trained to detect cancer, or care for people with diabetes) to communicate more effectively with people.

What I find depressing is that the claim for animals is, rightly, uncontroversial but I very much doubt that it would be in most (human) workplaces. Or at least, little effort is made to identify what the right tools might be. Every worker deserves the right tools – even humans.

If you want to find out more about Clara’s work she’s exhibiting at the Natural History Museum Universities Week next week and the Royal Society Summer Exhibition at the end of the month.
