Occupational Wellness

Alternative Work Arrangements

Alternative Work Arrangements (AWA) can lead to greater satisfaction and enhanced work-life balance for employees. It is the policy of the University to permit A.W.A., when it is in the best interests of UH and will enhance the productivity of our staff.

Workplace Accommodations

Reasonable workplace accommodations for employees with disabilities, which may include a modification or adjustment to a job or the work environment, are evaluated through Equal Opportunity Services.

Children's Learning Centers

Children's Learning Centers provide on-campus instruction and care for children in a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment. Children and legal dependents of students, staff and faculty of the University of Houston main campus are eligible for enrollment.  Tuition assistance may be available for qualifying applicants.

Ergonomic Assessments

An Ergonomic Assessment can maximize employee job function and productivity, prevent injuries, improve employee comfort, promote return to work after an injury and accommodate an employee with injuries or disabilities in performing his/her work tasks. Ergonomic assessments may be acquired through a supervisor’s request and are offered through the University’s Environmental Health & Safety office.
