Certified Professional Ergonomist
I am South Africa’s first Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE) and the CEO of Ergomax
Holdings (Pty) Ltd, the leading Ergonomics Consultancy in Africa. Over the past 17 years I’ve completed numerous ergonomics consultations throughout Southern Africa as well as extensive work in Southern African Mines and industry and am extensively involved in Ergonomics training and development.
I have developed the ergonomics risk calculators “Ergokinetic risk calculators” that quantify ergonomics risk in industry and also developed a specific “vehicle risk calculator” for the mining industry.
While on the committee with the compensation commissioner, I helped develop the guidelines for Work-Related Upper Limb Disorders (WRULDS). Further, I developed the Ergonomics component of the legislation and the tool used to assess the causal factors of the WRULDS disease and was involved in the technical committee for the Green Building Council, interior tool development.
Currently I am one of the three Ergonomics experts developing Ergonomics Regulations for the South African Department of Labour (DoL).
