EHS staff are available upon request to assess workstation ergonomic needs for Brown faculty, staff and students. We are also available to meet with departments proactively to provide Office Ergonomics Training.
If you haven’t found the most comfortable set up for your home office/work area, it is not too late to improve your space! Working from home can be challenging, but some small changes can make a big difference.
First, watch this YouTube video for some general guidance on setting up your home office/work area.
Next, read through the Ergonomics While Telecommuting guidance provided by Environmental Health & Safety. You will find ergonomic tips that you can use to improve your set up, as well as two more video links for reference.
If you are still having difficulty with your work area, contact your supervisor. With prior approval, you may be able to obtain the chair from your Brown office and/or your computer workstation.
