Workplace Ergonomics



What is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics is the science of fitting the task to the worker to maximize productivity while reducing discomfort, fatigue, and injury.

What do I do if I am in need of an assessment?

  1. Try adjusting your workstation by:
    • Reviewing the Healthy Workstation Guidelines and What to look for in Office Chairs in the resources section.
  2. If an in person assessment is still needed:
    • Contact your supervisor.  It is important that your supervisor is aware of your request.  
    • Contact Safety & Risk Management to schedule an in person assessment.


Telecommuting—also known as working from home (WFH), working remotely, or e-commuting—is a work arrangement in which the employee works outside the office. Often this means working from home or at a location close to home, such as coffee shops, libraries, or co-working spaces.
