CErgOSH staff are recognized in New Zealand and internationally as leaders in research and practice in Ergonomics and Occupational Safety and Health (OSH).
The Centre is the only one in New Zealand that offers tertiary academic programmes in both OSH and Ergonomics. The Centre’s flagship academic programme is the Graduate Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health (GDipOSH), which is the only course of its kind in New Zealand to be accredited by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health - IOSH (United Kingdom). The Ergonomics programme includes a Postgraduate Diploma in Ergonomics (PGDipErg) and a Master of Ergonomics (MErg) Degree, the content of which is based on the educational requirements for certification by the International Ergonomics Association. Both programmes are currently under revision.
In addition, the Centre is developing a suite of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) short courses for OSH Professionals.
