We provide a variety of services free-of-charge to UCLA campus employees. To get started submit a ticket through our Service Request Form. Please indicate the reason for the request. After submitting a request you will be prompted to complete BruinErgo training. Ergonomics program staff review training results on a regular basis and will schedule on-site evaluations as appropriate.
All UCLA campus employees are encouraged to take BruinErgo, a web-based ergonomics training and risk assessment survey. BruinErgo must be completed prior to having an on-site evalution.
An on-site evaluations is a 20-30 minute review of the employee's workstation. Typical evaluations review seated and standing posture, equipment position and task analysis.
Back Safety Training
For jobs that are more physically demanding, especially jobs requiring lifting and materials handling, we can provide back safety training. The training is tailored to suit the needs of a specific group or department, and consists of a group presentation as well as consultation for improving the ergonomics of specific job tasks.
We are available to provide ergonomics training or consultation for any campus job. While the majority of our consultations are related to computer workstations, we also provide ergonomics consultation for laboratory, kitchen, custodial, maintenance and shop-related positions. Please let us know on the request form if the job is non-computer related.
We can provide department-wide trainings in the form of group presentations (to larger groups of employees) and group workstation consultations (to smaller groups). Please mention on the online request if interested in receiving group training.

We serve all departments except those within Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica, Specialty Care Network, CPN and SMBP medical offices.
