The Ergonomics Society of South Africa Professional Affairs Board (ESSA-PAB) sets the minimum learning standards and qualifications for the recognition of competency in Ergonomics. This is in line with the standards of the International Ergonomics Association (IEA) as well as the European and US certification bodies (CREE and BCPE) and compatible to most other certification bodies around the world.
Individuals who meet the predetermined criteria may apply to be certified and registered by the Board.
