Membership benefits

Being a member of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors will help you advance your career whatever stage you're at. We have a package of membership benefits just for you.

Connect and collaborate

If you want to connect with other members, have a question or are looking for someone to collaborate on a project, we have an online discussion forum called Communities, where you can do just those things.

Read all about it

Our membership magazine, The Ergonomist, will be available for you to read online as soon as the issue is ready. Be the first to read about jobs, articles, news and views. You can access back issues online too. Find out more about The Ergonomist. Look out too for our regular eNewsletter, Think, which contains up to the minute news, jobs, events and other useful information.

Become a Chartered Ergonomist

Work towards achieving Chartered status and demonstrate to your peers, employers and clients that you have committed yourself to your career and its development. You can use the title ‘Chartered Ergonomist & Human Factors Specialist’ and the post-nominal C.ErgHF. If you’re just starting out in your career, you could become Chartered within 4 years of graduation! You will need to be a Registered Member or Fellow to be eligible for Chartership.

Get insured

A professional liability insurance policy protects you against the expense and worry associated with potential legal action taken against you. Towergate Insurance offers cover at special rates specifically for those working in ergonomics and human factors. You won't have to explain what you do! Find out more about their policies and whether they are right for you.

Get access to top journals and research material

You can get unlimited online access to Ergonomics and Applied Ergonomics, amongst the leading ergonomics and human factors journals. You will also have access to an archive that goes right back to the very first issue of each journal. See the latest papers in each of these journals. You can also buy printed ergonomics journals and books at substantially reduced rates. See the options.

You'll be in great company

If networking and knowledge sharing are important to you, we provide you with latest news about events and meetings that allow you to do just that. Get together with other members informally at free, local, organised talks, demonstrations and visits. As a member, you can make substantial savings on standard non-member rates at all our own larger events. For example, you could save around £100 when you book a place at our annual Ergonomics & Human Factors conference. Find out more about all events .

Have a voice

Become part of a team by volunteering to join a working group, or a committee or nominate yourself for the CIEHF Council and help us all move forwards. You could learn about the workings of our organisation, influence our decision-making and gain lots of new contacts. You could represent the CIEHF on external bodies or comment on government consultation documents and white papers. You could write pieces for publication in The Ergonomist. All good for CPD and your CV. Find out more about getting involved.
