Tried the above and still having concerns? Email  UBC’s Ergonomics Program to register for an online assessment.

We will review your responses to determine the next steps. If there is an obvious solution, such as getting a footrest, we will contact you and your supervisor to discuss equipment options, feasibility and implementation, or, if necessary, we will arrange an onsite assessment with you. After the assessment, both you and your supervisor will receive a copy of the report and recommendations. Purchasing decisions and implementation timelines are the determined by the  department.
