Ergonomic Assessments Available for Employees’ Workstations
Many of us spend several hours in one work location every day of the work week. A few simple adjustments to a workspace can make the difference between feeling pain and discomfort at work and being comfortable at your workstation. There are several components involved in evaluating the ergonomics of a workstation. Each workstation should be arranged in such a way that your body is properly aligned and does not cause pain or discomfort.
Contact Paul Burns (458.8175) for an ergonomic assessment of your work station. Paul is available to assist W&L employees with evaluating and making adjustments to work stations in order to increase comfort and eliminate injury caused by incorrect alignment.
This assessment is worth 10 points as a Live Well and Learn for Evolve Wellness participants!
Visit the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Computer Workstations eTool for more information on the safest and most comfortable workstation arrangements including good working positions, workstation components and an evaluation checklist.
