Ergonomic Matching Funds Program

January 31, 2011

The Colorado State University Risk Management and Insurance Department Ergonomics Program will provide up to $500 per employee in matching funds to modify or ergonomically improve existing office workstations.

The ergonomic matching funds program is still underway with plenty of funds still available.
 
The Colorado State University Risk Management and Insurance Department Ergonomics Program offers potential funding of up to $500 dollars per employee in matching funds (50% of total equipment cost) to modify existing office workstations to provide departments a cost-effective method of injury prevention.

These funds are available to any department and employee using any non-industrial workstation.

Funding must improve workstation or eliminate hazard

The equipment request must ergonomically improve a workstation or eliminate an identified ergonomic hazard in the office setting, where the department may be unable to obtain the equipment with their current financial situation and the department head/director can demonstrate a need for the equipment as well as justify the request for financial assistance.

Apply before this fiscal year's funding is exhausted

Funding available for the matching funds program is limited each fiscal year and is first-come first-served. When all available funds have been utilized, no further funding will be made available to any department until the next fiscal year.

Limitations on use of funds

Requested matching funds cannot be applied to furniture or for for new construction, renovation, and relocation projects. Unusual requests for matching funds will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Visit the Environmental Health Services website and click on “Ergonomic Equipment Matching Funds Programs” for details, application forms, and further instructions.
