    The Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors (on 20th October 2009, the Ergonomics Society changed its name to IEHF) is the professional body for ergonomists and human factors specialists based in the United Kingdom. It also attracts members throughout the world and is affiliated to the International Ergonomics Association. It provides recognition of competence of its members through its Professional Register.

    Martin Anderson (FIEHF, EurErg, CMIOSH) is a graduate in psychology with two Masters degrees in Ergonomics, and Process Safety & Loss Prevention. He has specialised in the area of human factors and safety management, particularly in relation to major hazards and complex systems. Since 2001 he has been a Specialist Inspector at the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), gaining wide experience of regulating human, management and organisational aspects on over 100 major hazard sites. He currently works in the Offshore Division of HSE where his work includes planned inspection, incident investigation, safety case assessment, provision of expert evidence and formal enforcement.
    Before becoming an Inspector, Martin worked for two consultancies and the Health & Safety Laboratory (HSL) - working in a range of industries including commercial aviation, railways, construction, coal mining, electricity, oil and gas, nuclear, and chemicals. He is a regular conference speaker and lecturer, and has been a member of the IEHF Council since 2003.
