Multidisciplinary technical certification and accreditation programs for Universities and Companies
Oxford Research Institute is a multidisciplinary technical ergonomic certification and accreditation organization formed to facilitate, and foster, multidisciplinary applications of Ergonomics and Human Factors Engineering to improve human safety and system performance. Our goal is to elevate the acceptance of ergonomics and Human Factors Engineering methods, data, technology and persons who practice this profession.
The global mission of The Oxford Research Institute is to encourage & foster excellence in ergonomics through design. This mission is partially achieved through the execution of multidisciplinary technical certification and accreditation programs which focus on establishing ergonomics design criteria and requirements to assure technical excellence of certificate holders. This also includes University accreditation, training and education of academic and commercial organizations, and the publication of journal articles, books and other mechanisms to enhance ergonomic design of products, tools, facilities, equipment, tasks, procedures, training and management systems.
The Oxford Research Institute Inc., a nonprofit public accrediting and certification agency, is pleased to announce another quality service to corporate providers of ergonomic or Human Factors Engineering Services. If the criteria listed below can be met they will be eligible to use the ORI 5 star seal of excellence and be listed as a preferred provider of ergonomic services. We believe that this designation will further help superior ergonomic provider organizations to further differentiate their services from other less qualified providers.
From time to time, The Oxford Research Institute provides "Awards for Excellence" to a select individuals or organization which achieve exemplary performance levels congruent with the Institutes goals of excellence.
