Office Ergonomics

 Office ergonomics is the study of adapting a workstation to fit the individual using it.  The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) developed an ergonomic program specifically for the office environment and computer workstations in 1992.  EHS offers ergonomic evaluations of workstations upon request.  The evaluation not only offers one-on-one ergonomics training, but also looks at the interaction of the individual while using their workstation, measures heights, distances and makes recommendations for improvement based on these factors. The evaluation normally takes 30-45 minutes and can be scheduled by contacting Marty Sumners.

HR Training and Development also offers group training as part of a professional development series (listed as workplace safety) three times a year. To learn more about that program, contact HR Training and Development.
