The Furniture Buyer works closely with the campus Safety Coordinator and Industrial Hygenist on ergonomic issues and evaluations.
Employees should first contact the Campus Safety Coordinator, Michaux Burchard (Human Resources) to request an ergonomic evaluation of their work station or chair. Based on his recommendations, the Buyer can assist the employees to obtain the best products to meet their needs at the best pricing.
The Safety Coordinator will also provide a copy of the evaluation and recommendations to the Buyer. Both the Safety Coordinator and Furniture Buyer work with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) representative and the University Worker's Compensation Manager in a confidential and professional manner for specific employee needs as appropriate.
