Volunteers needed: Do you have aches or pains that you think may be related to your office environment?

March 3, 2014 — 

As part of their Environment and Occupational Performance course, students in the Master of Occupational Therapy program learn to complete office ergonomics assessments.   They put what they know into practice right on campus!  The course instructor is currently recruiting volunteers (faculty and staff at University of Manitoba) to assist with this student learning opportunity.

What happens?

Two students come to your office, conduct a brief interview, observe you at work, take pictures of your set-up and complete a checklist.  The students write a summary of their findings with recommendations to improve your safety and comfort in the office environment.  You receive a copy of their report.

How long does the assessment take?

The students will be in your office for approximately 60 minutes

When does the assessment happen?

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 in the afternoon

If I am interested, but I am not available during these times, is that ok?

No, unfortunately the students’ timetable is very full and they can only complete the assessments on this date.

How much does this amazing service cost?

You won’t be charged a thing.

How do I find out more and sign up?

Please contact Leslie Johnson, Occupational Therapy Faculty, School of Medical Rehabilitation, Leslie [dot] Johnson [at] med [dot] umanitoba [dot] ca, 204-789-3623.
