Storm Ready

StormReady is a recognition program started in 1999 by the National Weather Service to help arm America's communities and Universities with the communication and safety skills needed to save lives and property–before and during an event.  StormReady Universities are better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through advanced planning, education, awareness efforts and effective warning systems. No University is storm proof, but meeting the StormReady criteria can help save lives.

Ergonomics Program

Ergonomics looks at the way we physically interact with our environment at work, rest and play, finding ways to fit the tasks we do to the way our bodies naturally work.

As an ECU employee you are in the best position to evaluate the tasks you do each day whether it be computer data entry, microsurgery, or plumbing.  No one knows the job you do as well as you do.

The links on this page are intended to provide you with the information and basic tools necessary to assess and correct your own job.


Be sure to report any physical discomforts that last more than a week.  Report them first to your supervisor.  If you are unable to identify the source or find a solution, contact the Office of Environmental Health & Safety to request a worksite evaluation.
