Ergonomic assessments involve a work site visit from a certified occupational therapist (OT) from which a follow-up report with recommendations is submitted. Occupational Concepts Ltd. of Moncton has been engaged to complete the ergonomic assessments for Mount Allison employees.

This follow-up report is sent to the Human Resources department and is then forwarded to the employee, the employee's supervisor or department head and the appropriate dean or director. Any resulting action then becomes the responsibility of the employee to initiate with his or her supervisor through the appropriate University channels.

The cost of the assessment is covered by Human Resources. While the budget available for this program is limited, the department is normally able to accommodate most requests.

The ergonomic assessments are co-ordinated by Lori Geldart. Lori serves as the liaison between HR and the employee and the occupational therapist. She can be contacted by email at hr@mta.ca or by phone at ext. 2280.

To request an ergonomic assessment, simply complete the two forms below and forward them to Lori in HR. (The assessment cannot be scheduled without the completed forms.) Lori will then contact you to co-ordinate a date and time for the assessment.
