Safety Policy
  • New Year Office Work Space Checkup

    Start the New Year off on the right foot by assessing your office desk setup.

    • Check your set up. Prevent neck/shoulder/back strain by maintaining proper posture and position whether sitting in your desk chair or standing to work.
    • Review dos and don’ts for standing and working.  Always use your antifatigue mat to minimize the pressure on your joints.
    • Stand up and move. Get up from your chair and move throughout the day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator or take a walk at lunch time. 
    • Stretch. Review recommended stretches easily performed at your desk.

     

    Contact Carol McMillin, EHS/Risk Manager, at 610-409-3221 or cmcmillin@ursinus.edu if you have any questions.
