Ergonomic Resources

The primary ergonomic risk for employees at the SRWC campus is repetitive motion involved in computer usage and extended sitting at their workstation.

Environmental Health & Safety

The purpose of Stanford University‚Äôs Ergonomics Program is to promote employee health by limiting ergonomic risk factors and presenting best practices for workplace ergonomics. Your workspace should respond to your changing needs, helping you eliminate uncomfortable postures, reduce eyestrain, enhance communication and harmonize with your technology. To reduce the risk of ergonomic related injury, view the best practices and resources from: Environmental Health & Safety

Ergonomic Tips & Posture

Working From Home Ergonomics

Refer to UIT's guidelines about temporary movement of office furniture.

If you identify any red flags or need assistance with your home workstation, we request a series of three pictures to help determine what adjustments need to be made and/or what equipment may be beneficial. If necessary, please ask someone to take the following pictures of you while you are seated from 3 angles:

1: Profile (side),  2: Top view,  3: From behind

Once you send the pictures to srwc-operations@stanford.edu, we can schedule a Zoom call to review your setup, address your concerns and determine next steps.
