Safety and Risk and Risk Management developed this program to improve the health and happiness of VCU employees by assisting with fitting the workstation and activities to the person. Proper ergonomics can increase health and safety, job satisfaction, work quality and productivity, while reducing lost work hours and injuries. Ergonomic injuries can occur from job duties or personal activities. Often an employee can perform a self-assessment and make simple changes to their workstation, job duties or personal activities, which can make significant improvements.
For additional assistance, contact the Occupational Safety office to schedule an evaluation.
