ESSA was formally established in 1985. The comprehensive history of the Society is available here. Members of the organisation come from a number of different disciplines and areas of ergonomics.

We encourage membership from academics and practictioners involved in all sectors of industry, for example agriculture, rail, aviation, mining, commerce, occupational health and indeed all working environments.

All members will receive newsletters plus the ergonomicsSA journal. For both of these we need input from YOU.

We will also keep you informed of international activities and forthcoming events / conferences.
