- Is there a loaner program to test out the program?
- Can a department avoid purchasing ergonomic equipment for an employee due to budget constraint?
- Are there any funds on campus for ergonomic equipment?
No, there is no program to borrow product. Most products ordered have a 30 return policy from their vendors if the employee is not fully satisfied with the product.
No, under the general clause rule of Cal OSHA, it is the responsibility of the department to provide equipment for the employee for any known risks.
At this time, there is no funds available for ergonomic equipment purchases.
