Ergonomics International Proud Members of The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society

The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFSES) was founded in 1957 and is the world’s largest scientific association for human factors/ergonomics professionals. HFES serves the needs of members and the public by promoting and advancing the discovery and exchange of knowledge concerning the characteristics of human beings that are applicable to the design of systems, products, tools, and environments of all kinds. Ergonomics International is a proud member in good standing.

HFES envisions a future in which the reach, relevance, and quality of human factors/ergonomics are greatly expanded by enriching the science and enhancing its impact on solving societal problems by embracing outward-facing collaborations. The Society’s 4,500 members work in educational institutions, companies, government and military research centers, and independent consultancies in 58 countries. HFES is a Federated Society of the International Ergonomics Association. The organizations slogan says it all: “Human Factors and Ergonomics: People-Friendly Design Through Science and Engineering.”

About Ergonomics International

Each with more than twenty years’ experience working from forensic investigation to factory floors, Ergonomics International focuses on designing and implementing tools that are evidence-based. Mark Heidebrecht (MSE, ACSM-EP, CPE/CHFP) and Sam Bradbury (MAOM, ATC, ACSM-EP, CPE/CHFP) built one of the largest ergonomic libraries globally, including one of the largest occupational epidemiology datasets to make the most informed decisions.

In addition to one of the largest data libraries, the company utilizes a statistical epidemiologist and assembled peer-reviewed studies focused on ensuring the latest and best answers to ergonomic and human factors impacting the challenges that companies face.

Recently, the company introduced one of the most powerful software tools for companies and insurers to reduce musculoskeletal injury risk. This mobile compatible software tool provides the best information to help management quantify and mitigate risk.

Ergonomics International’s EvidenceBased Risk Analysis Software Suite

Ergonomics International’s Evidence‐Based Risk Analysis Software Suite utilizes standardized tools which have high validity and reliability. These tools provide management with real-time data to make evidence‐based decisions, yet data is simple enough for ergonomic, safety, occupational health, Lean Manufacturing, and Six-Sigma professionals to understand and apply.

Dashboards are customizable providing the most valuable information at each level of the enterprise. Leading indicators allow users to get ahead of injuries and focus on prevention with the use of cost-effective tools.

Mobile analysis tools include:

EPDA™ (Employee Perceived Exertion Analysis)

Z‐EBRA™ (Proprietary Evidence-Based Risk Analysis)

NERPA – (Novel Ergonomic Postural Assessment)

Cumulative Lifting Analysis

ISO-based Ergonomic Analysis

Manual Material Handling Guidelines

NIOSH Lifting Equation (The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health)

ACGIH Hand Threshold Limit Value

The mobile compatible SaaS (Software as a Service) solution accurately documents and reports risks in real-time. Mobile compatibility eliminates traditional methods of dual entry that create lags in data analysis and potential introduction of errors.
