He also played a key role in the establishment of the Ergonomics Society in Iran. He was the first Vice President Iranian Ergonomics Society (IES) that it has established in the pre-intervention phase of his Ergonomics Intervention Programme since 2001. Helali’s consideration and contribution is ergonomics as software technology, technique, ‘Know-How’ transfer that it has potential challenging in IDCs. He has investigated and mentioned ‘what are challenges?’ ‘What are adjustments?’ And also what are development and testing of systematic techniques for ergonomic intervention in the IDC and the further research study? For universal applicability – generalizability - of findings and recommendations: See, his publications.
His special areas of interest are Ergonomics and Human Factors Knowledge transfer to organizations; Systemic Macroergonomics Intervention Work; Organizational Design and Management (ODAM), Participatory Ergonomics; Appreciative Macroergonomics; Organizational Development and Productivity; Pedagogical Development; Learning theories; Action Learning; Action Research-types Intervention; Industrially Developing Countries (IDCs); Reflection Practices.
