The Occupational Health & Safety Act - a reference manual

"If an engineer built you a bridge that fell down, you could complain to the PEO and they would look into his scope of professional practice. A lot of other legislated professions work the same. But ergonomics isn't a legislated profession." Paul, MA, MBA, BSc, CPE

While employers are legally required to comply with health and safety professionals and abide their Provincial/State/National occupational laws, contracted ergonomists and the methods they use are not legally regulated.

However, if something bad happens as a result of taking or refusing the recommendations of an ergonomist, that ergonomist can be called to testify in court to present their evaluations as evidence.
