Ergonomics Program Overview
Computer workstation safety
As computer use poses the greatest risk of injury to employees who work at OP locations, the EH&S Department has developed a comprehensive Ergonomics Injury Prevention Program which consists of Omega Health Systems, an online training and self-assessment tool; as well as personalized ergonomics evaluations. Since implementing this program, ergonomics related injuries have been reduced by over 75 percent in the last five years. This training and self-assessment are a preliminary part of scheduling your ergonomics evaluation. After completing the training, UCOP Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) will perform an ergonomics evaluation of your computer workstation.
