Does your department have a Computer Workstation Evaluator?

The University relies on a network of trained Computer Workstation Evaluators to perform basic workstation evaluations within their own departments. These evaluators play an important role in helping to prevent ergonomic injuries and are required for departments to be eligible for the Ergonomics Matching Funds Program. If you have a staff member who is interested in health and safety and you want to help them enhance their competencies in problem-solving, communications, and service, please encourage them to get trained and volunteer for your department. The next training is scheduled for 11/2/16

Does your team have a wellness ambassador?

Wellness ambassadors are faculty or staff volunteers who help create a safe and healthy workplace in their unit by committing as little as an hour each month to promote the campus’ health and wellness programs. If a member of your unit is passionate about wellness and interested in enhancing their communication and planning skills, encourage them to volunteer. The next training is scheduled for mid-January.  Learn more
