Certification is a Quality Label
Certification with the Eur.Erg. title guarantees that the ergonomist:
– has obtained a broad education in ergonomics at university level
– has at least three years of practical experience as an ergonomist
– has continuously developed his or her skills in ergonomics
– is obligated to conform to a Code of Conduct
Professionalism and practice
European Ergonomists are professional level ergonomists who are experienced in using knowledge from the areas of anatomy, physiology, psychology, social organisation and the physical environment to design work systems, activities and tools to optimise human performance and well-being. All Eur.Erg.’s have experience in taking full responsibility for the use and application of ergonomics knowledge and methods in practical situations.
Ergonomists working in research related to practical applications of ergonomics are equally as acceptable to CREE as are those in professional employment, in consultancies or other businesses.
Registration is valid for a period of 5 years after which renewed assessment has to take place. Central to the renewal is an assessment of ongoing training to ensure that the knowledge is kept up-to-date. This guarantees continuing professional quality both for the European Ergonomist and their employer or clients.
