Telework Ergonomics

As a result of COVID-19 and such a large portion of the Harvard University community transitioning to remote work, there are challenges in setting up an ergonomically correct remote workstation. To address this concern, EH&S has altered our Ergonomics Program’s resources and services to address the needs of the large new telecommuting workforce.

For ergonomic related assistance or questions, please contact your school/unit Designated Safety Officer (DSO) by filling out an online telecommuting ergonomics request form.

Please visit the Ergonomics Program for more information and resources.
