Get the App

If you are a member of the CIEHF, and as part of your membership benefits package, you now have free access to an App that allows you to read your monthly issue of The Ergonomist on your tablet or smartphone. Non-members can also now get access to the magazine this way by paying for the issues through a 6 month or 12 month subscription.
The App is available on iPhone, Android and Kindle. It is not currently available on Fire phones or Windows phones. To download the App, go to the App store on your phone or tablet and search for ‘ergonomist’ and look for the bright yellow App logo. The App will show the current issue of The Ergonomist and a preview of an older issue. On an iPhone the App will show either a ‘get’ button or a cloud with an arrow pointing downwards. Android users will see an install button. Click these to download the App.
Once the App has downloaded, open it. You will be asked to register. This is entirely optional and if you don’t wish to register you can click ‘no thanks’. You will then see the current issue of The Ergonomist. Click subscribe, just above the issue. At the bottom of the screen is the instruction ‘CIEHF members sign in below’. If you are a CIEHF member, just click ‘sign in’.
Members will be sent the log in details by email from the CIEHF so you need to use these to sign in. Once you have signed in, click on the issue and then click ‘download’ and then ‘view’ to read the issue. You will receive a notification on your phone when new issues become available and in future all you will have to do is sign in and download the new issue. If you have a ‘newsstand’ on your device the issues will also appear there.
An electronic copy of The Ergonomist will still be available for members in the CIEHF portal, MyIEHF.
