Where only 1½ years ago the number of European Registered Ergonomists passed 400, we have reached already the next milestone: more than 450! We are proud that the quantity of professional ergonomics grows so quickly. We also notice that the number of job vacancies in ergonomics and human factors that specifically ask for a Eur.Erg. title is rapidly growing.
CREE assessed 24 new Eur.Erg.s and 25 prolongations in its meeting on May 31-June 1st. Amongst the new registered ergonomists are the first two from Latvia, two from Hungary and three from Poland. Despite the economic crisis, the total number of Eur.Erg.s is increasing, and has now passed four hundred!
