Michael Smith is the Robert Ratner Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering.  He has an affiliate appointment in the department of Population Health.  Professor Smith has been at UW-Madison since 1984.  He has also taught as an adjunct faculty member at Xavier University in Cincinnati and at the University of Cincinnati.  He served as a research program director at the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health from 1974-1984 where he directed a research program on human factors, ergonomics, and safety. 

Professor Smith teaches courses on human factors, ergonomics, safety, job design, and organization management.  He and his students conduct research on a wide range of human factors issues such as occupational injury causation, methods to reduce musculoskeletal injuries at work, people and technology integration, managing organizational change, and community redevelopment.

Professor Smith is a Fellow of the International Ergonomics Association.  He has received the US Public Health Service Superior Service Award for his research on using human factors methods to reduce occupational injuries.  In addition he has received two special awards from the Director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health for his research on computer users' safety and health, and for the development of principles for managing corporate safety programs.  In 2003 Professor Smith received the Benjamin Smith Reynolds Medal from the College of Engineering for excellence in teaching engineers, and in 2004 he received the University of Wisconsin Chancellor's Teaching Excellence Award.
