Roy Cochran-Patel

Ergonomist at Bupa UK

Roy holds a Master’s Degree in Health Ergonomics from the University of Derby. He joined Bupa’s Occupational Health department in October 2005, working closely with corporate clients to support employee return to work following illness or injury. During this time he worked within a number of sectors including manufacturing, office, contact centres and healthcare. His skills enable him to identify and reduce ergonomic risk factors to improve the working environment, job design, and employee health and wellbeing.

Roy has a passion for raising awareness of good ergonomic practice and design, regardless of the working environment. He has a specific interest in reducing sedentary behaviour. Since 2014 his focus has been on improving the work environment for Bupa’s own employees in our office locations, health centres and care homes.
