Fall 2017 & Winter 2018 


Active Workstation: NMU’s Employee Wellness Committee and Olson Library has launched an initiative to help employees avoid prolonged sitting while at their workstations. The Active Workstations program gives employees opportunities to increase movement and/or promote healthier positions while at their desks or work spaces.

Two sets of equipment are available on a try-to-buy trial. One set can be checked out at the Library’s Public Services Desk for up to two weeks, while the other set can be tried in the Library’s demonstration area. For more details view the active workstation brochure.

Some of the equipment require a release form to be filled out and signed before employees can use the equipment, because of the assumed risks of physical activity. Regular maintenance of the equipment will be performed between each checkout to ensure the safety of the employees.

Available equipment includes:

   • Adjustable height standing desk (2)
   • Fitdesk – exercise bike with desktop platform (2)
   • Adjustable height rolling laptop cart (2)
   • 24” telescoping monitor (2)

Give us feedback! After using the equipment please tell us about your experience by filling out this survey. This is important so we can better this program and future programs for the employees of the university.
