We’re excited to introduce a new process for helping employees achieve a properly fitted workstation.
Previously, an employee would submit an Ergonomic Evaluation Request though the SCCSIG website. The request would then go into a queue until the evaluation could be scheduled. And though this process did include a self-evaluation form, it was not comprehensive in its design to facilitate a quick resolution to the request.
Starting February 1, 2024, employees will be using a more complete and thorough Ergonomic Evaluation Self-Assessment Tool in an effort to identify common workstation issues that can be corrected immediately – eliminating the need and wait for someone to visit the employee in most cases.
The Self-Assessment Tool will take the user through a series of questions specific to the workstation. These include:
- Office Chair
- Work Surface/Accessories
The majority of issues an employee faces with their workstation can be corrected by utilizing the recommendations received in this new Self-Assessment Tool.
Completing the Ergonomic Evaluation Self-Assessment may take approx. 15 minutes to complete, and it’s easy to get started:
- Click the District Specific Link to Access Tool (Links are listed below for each district)
- Complete the Ergonomic Self-Assessment Tool
- Review Recommendations
- Make Adjustments
A report summarizing the assessment, including recommendations, will be emailed to the employee’s district representative. In some cases, an on-site ergonomic evaluation may be needed. If the employee has completed the self-assessment, made the suggested adjustments, and is still in need of assistance – an on-site evaluation can then be requested. Please note, this process does not apply to those who are in need of a claim-related ergonomic evaluation.
