Is the “science of designing work environments and processes for the people who use them”. Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) works with M Healthy and the U-M ergonomics team to increase awareness of ergonomics resources available to University of Michigan-Flint faculty and staff. 


EHS provides free initial ergonomic evaluations for any faculty or staff member that is interested in preventing discomfort while performing job tasks. During the current pandemic situation, EHS can provide initial ergonomic evaluations for workers who are working remotely via phone or virtual platform. In performing an ergonomic evaluation, work-related factors that may pose a risk of illness or injury can be identified. EHS also provides loaner office equipment for employees to try before they buy when requested. If interested in either of these programs, please contact EHS for further information.
