OEAP Scope of Practice

Scope of Practice

The Office Ergonomics Accreditation Program (OEAP) is designed to provide a level of assurance to management that the accredited individual performing the work has obtained:

  • High quality education
  • Practical, hands-on training and application
  • Theoretical proficiency through examination

Once an individual completes the Office Ergonomics Accreditation Program, the individuals are awarded credentials. By attaining the credentials of Accredited Office Ergonomics Evaluator (AOEE), the individual has demonstrated the knowledge and ability to perform the following workstation evaluation activities:

  • Evaluate the current workstation setup
  • Adjust existing equipment to the user
  • Recommend and/or purchase needed equipment
  • Train the employee on the basics of workstation setup and proper adjustment of equipment
  • Follow up with workers who have been evaluated to track their progress and answer any questions

In addition to the activities performed by the AOEE, the Accredited Office Ergonomics Specialist (AOES) has demonstrated the knowledge and ability to:

  • Write and implement a written ergonomics program which includes the mission and goals of the organization, handling process of MSD cases, and expectations and responsibilities of all employee levels
  • Form and operate an ergonomics team
  • Train management, supervisors and employees on the importance of ergonomics and the roles each level plays in an effective ergonomics initiative

The credentials provided by the OEAP program (AOEE, AOES) do not denote a qualification to diagnose an illness or injury, prescribe any level of treatment, or evaluate industrial applications. Further, the AOEE and AOES credentials are not designed to portray the individual as a professional ergonomist; please refer to the Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics for the credentialing process of a professional ergonomist.
