Office Ergonomics

The HealthPoint Occupational Health Program (OHP) offers online training and self-assessment for ergonomics in office settings.  Please utilize this link for further information:

Stretch and Flex

Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints. Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage. Utilize this Stretch & Flex poster to help prevent soft tissue injuries.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Ergonomics

At this time, we can only support requests to perform Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ergonomic workstation assessments. The Deputy ADA Coordinator receives and reviews all of the requests prior to EHS involvement.

Please visit their website for more information regarding the process.
