UBC's ergonomics program is available for individual ergonomics assessment of your workspace. The goal of the assessment is to improve your comfort and reduce your risk of musculoskeletal injury while working.
To request an ergonomics assessment, complete an ergonomics assessment request form and include pictures of you at your workstation. Please try to include at least one photo with an overview of your full workstation and at least one photo that shows your area of concern. Prior to requesting an office assessment, we encourage you to review our resources and home office ergo webinar.
After you have submitted your request, we will review your responses within 1 to 2 business days and will contact you to arrange a virtual assessment. After the assessment, we will follow-up with your Manager to discuss recommendations and feasible options as purchasing decisions are made by the department. A report will be sent to both you and your Manager.
Please note that assessments are only available for UBC faculty, staff and students with an active paid appointment. We are available for assessments in all UBC work environments including offices, home offices, laboratories, building services, dentistry, food services, child care, etc.
