Office Resources and Training

Ergonomic Training

The GSE provides basic office furniture (including desk chair, desk, and some storage, e.g. file cabinet). For office furniture upgrade requests, a consultation is required prior to office redesign. The facilities team works to provide sustainable and ergonomic furniture choices for GSE staff. Furniture and office space concerns should be submitted with enough lead time to the facilities team.

Golf Cart Training

The primary function of the GSE golf cart is to support GSE-IT, which has to haul equipment to all six buildings. However, it can also be used by other dean’s office groups who have the occasional need to transport materials. The cart should not be used as a mode of transportation for routine meetings/events; it is meant to be used for special occasions that require a lot of hauling. Please read the cart policies before reserving:

CART POLICIES

Cart Safety Training (online) is mandatory for everyone who drives a cart on campus. Please refer to the cart policies for instructions to access the safety training module.
