Environment Health and Safety (EH&S) is following up on your request for a Tier 2 (On-site) ergonomic evaluation. As we discussed, the best place to start with the ergonomic assessment is to use the U.C.S.D on-line tools. These can be accessed via the U.C.S.D. Blink site: http://blink.ucsd.edu/go/ergo, I recommend that you consider reviewing the online
