Ergonomics in Other Countries and New FPE Projects

Our International Ambassadors provide insight on Ergonomics in Europe. Click on the RESOURCES tab to see what Ergonomics is like in Finland, Germany, Portugal, and the United Kingdom. In 2020, FPE coordinated with NIOSH, AIHA, and IEA to translate readily available ergonomic tools and techniques into multiple languages. When completed, the tool sets will be available on several websites – FPE, IEA, and AIHA. Spanish versions are expected by the beginning of 2021. Work has already under way to get these tools translated into Mandarin.

FPE welcomes four new Ambassadors – Germany, India, Italy, and Spain. Check out their bios under the PROFESSIONAL ERGONOMICS/International Advisory Subcommittee Ambassadors tab.

A second initiative in coordinating with IEA, FPE is compiling a list of graduate schools throughout the world that offer graduate programs in Ergonomics/Human Factors. The goal is to have a comprehensive list by early 2021.

Who We Are

The Foundation for Professional Ergonomics was established in 2004 as a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing professionalism in ergonomics through educational activities and awards.  Our goals support the goals of BCPE, and we work closely with the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) on various ergonomics practitioner initiatives.  FPE attained an IRS 501(c)(3) status enabling tax-deductible donations from those sharing this dedication to professionalism in ergonomics.
