Ergonomics

Office ergonomics are an essential component of the WCSU Safety and Illness Prevention Program. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has published proposed regulations which would mandate the type of equipment used in offices.  The Connecticut Department of Administrative Services has established guidelines specifying operating parameters of office equipment.  This policy applies to all office environments where computers are used. A representative from Health and Public Safety Management will conduct an ergonomic assessment of your work station and help you to make those changes necessary to promote healthy work habits.
