Ergonomics in Shared Workspaces

Ergonomics play an important role in our safety and wellbeing. The proper ergonomic design of our workspaces can minimize the risk of a wide range of injuries. The UBC Ergonomics program offers a range of services to promote optimal working postures and practices to reduce workplace musculoskeletal injuries.

Each individual workstation has equipment that can be adjusted to meet personal ergonomic needs. As standardized equipment and technology is rolled out across workstations in shared space, you will be able to easily fine-tune your workstation no matter what desk you use.
