EH&S provides guidance to individuals and organizational units on how to begin addressing ergonomic concerns. The additional resources found on this page also cover guidance on how to address ergonomics issues by the type of work environment.
EH&S has limited resources to provide on-site ergonomics evaluations for office workstations.
These documents can help employees conduct a self-assessment of their workstation and pick products that may improve the ergonomics of their workstation:
- Workstation Adjustment Guidelines
- Guide for Selecting Office Ergonomic Furniture and Equipment
- Sit-Stand Workstations
EH&S requires all individuals requesting an on-site evaluation to complete an online self-assessment in ComfortZone. This assessment includes questions about areas of discomfort and produces recommended adjustments and trainings to help alleviate those areas of discomfort.
Should an individual still require or request an on-site ergonomic assessment following the online self-assessment, EH&S can perform that assessment at a cost. A cost estimate will be provided to the individual and their supervisor for review and signature.
To request access to the online self-assessment tool or begin the process for an on-site ergonomics evaluation, please complete our Office Ergonomics Evaluation Form. For evaluation requests related to non-office work environments, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
