About the IEHF

IEHF is a professional organisation in the UK for ergonomists and human factors practitioners. It is dedicated to providing information and services to the public, and support to its members.

Ergonomics is about designing for people, wherever they interact with products, systems or processes. The emphasis within ergonomics is to ensure that designs complement the strengths and abilities of people and minimise the effects of their limitations, rather than forcing them to adapt.

In achieving this aim, it becomes necessary to understand and design for the variability represented in the population, spanning such attributes as age, size, strength, cognitive ability, prior experience, cultural expectations and goals.

Qualified ergonomists are the only recognised professionals to have competency in optimising performance, safety and comfort. The IEHF is the only body in the UK managing and representing this competency.
