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.
