 Office Ergonomics

An improper setup of office equipment can lead to musculoskeletal disorders over time. OSHA has published guidance on correct positioning of office equipment in a checklist format.

EHS is available to conduct a preliminary ergonomic assessment in response to employ reports of discomfort or requests for advice on best practices in office set up.
 

If an employee continues to have discomfort due to the setup of their workstation, the supervisor, at his or her discretion, may arrange with EHS for an independent evaluator from CUA’s insurance agency to assess the situation.

 
Any additional or specialized office equipment must be purchased through the employee’s department, at the discretion of the employee’s supervisor.
