NIOSH Toolkit Goes International

Ergonomics can truly be collaborative! The Ergonomics Committee of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) is in the final stages of updating their Ergonomic Assessment Toolkit with assistance from the NIOSH NORA Musculoskeletal Health Council. The Toolkit is an online guide to 25 free tools which can help practitioners assess the risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. The Foundation for Professional Ergonomics and their International Representatives have been assisting with translating the Toolkit into multiple languages. It is currently being translated into Spanish, Arabic, and Hindi. Mandarin is next!  The update and initial translations should be completed soon and will be shared on multiple different websites (AIHA, NIOSH, FPE, etc.) for ease of access for users.

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.
