Ergonomics Excellence Award

'Ergonomically designed' is a popular term with consumers and is widely used by manufacturers. The Ergonomics Excellence Award means you can demonstrate your product's design and manufacture are independently assessed.

The FIRA International Ergonomics Excellence Award was launched in 2000; initially for office chairs. It has since been extended to desks, workstation accessories (such as monitor arms and laptop holders) and domestic products. Now any furniture, or related product can work towards our Ergonomics Excellence Award.

The FIRA International Ergonomics Excellence Award recognises companies who design and manufacture ergonomically outstanding products, especially those that meet and generally exceed the requirements of British and European standards.
