The seal of quality “Ergonomic product”
We have been supporting ergonomically efficient products since 1998 through our product certification. Company buyers and private individuals value the IGR certificate as a useful decision-making tool.
The particular value of the IGR seal of quality is in its strict neutrality and its nationwide unique independence.
The IGR Institut für Gesundheit und Ergonomie e.V. operates nationwide and is a partner der INQA (New Quality of Work Initiative, supported by the Federal Ministry for Labour and Social Affairs) and is also a founding member of the Federal State Prevention Commission – a project of the Bavarian State Ministry for the Environment and Public Health.
The IGR is only liable to meet the objectives of its association. That products which are certified by us have significantly greater chances on the market is fully compatible with our objectives.
