Environmental Health and Safety

Ergonomics

At this time, Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) will not be providing ergonomic assessments. However, we have an agreement with ErgoWellness to provide ergonomic assessments at the negotiated price of $125.00 per assessment. Departments will need to cover the cost of the assessment from their own budgets. ErgoWellness may be contacted at 512 899-8508.

ErgoWellness does not provide any follow-up as part of their ergonomic assessment. Should equipment be purchased by the department as a result of the ergonomic assessment, be sure that the equipment can be returned within thirty (30) days and that all packing material is retained in case the equipment does not alleviate the concern that generated the ergonomic assessment.
