Course Description

This training is recommended for all University staff, faculty and students. Use the Office Ergonomics Self-Evaluation Training to self-correct ergonomic problems. Highly forceful or repetitive motions using awkward postures can result in discomfort, disabling injuries. As a result, the departments of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) and Risk Management, Purchasing, AFSCME and U Relations are working together to reduce the likelihood of such injury among University employees.

This workstation self-assessment and evaluation training is free through the Department of Environmental Health and Safety. If additional assistance is needed to properly set up a workstation, please contact the Department of Environmental Health and Safety at (612) 626-6002, or dehs@umn.edu. Allow four weeks to schedule an evaluation.
