Health & Safety - Undertake a workstation self-assessment provides guidance on how to complete the computer workstation self-assessment form. Request assistance from your supervisor/manager as required.
The computer workstation self-assessment helps you assess your computer workstation and make simple adjustments to optimise your comfort. This checklist should be completed when you join the University as a staff member and whenever you move to a new workstation location.
Provide a copy of your completed form to your supervisor for review.
In most cases you will be able to resolve any issues by speaking to your supervisor. If you are unable to resolve workstation concerns highlighted in your self-assessment, completing the Office Ergonomic training available via TrainME (access requires UoM credentials) can provide further guidance.
If you and your supervisor is unable to resolve your workstation concern, your concern can be escalated to your local Health and Safety Business Partner.
Escalation to Health and Safety Business Partner
Health & Safety - Request a workstation assessment process provides guidance on how to escalate an assistance request related to your workstation assessment from your supervisor to your local Health and Safety Business Partner.
If your local health and safety business partner is unable to resolve your workstation concern, they will escalate your concerns to the University Ergonomists.
Escalation to Ergonomic Specialist
Where a workstation self-assessment has been completed by a staff member and concerns persist after their supervisor and their local Health and Safety Business Partner has reviewed and assisted, Health and Safety Business Partner can escalate the assessment to the Health and Safety Services team for specialist ergonomic assistance.
