Ergonomics Training Classes
The UCLA Ergonomics Program is very excited to be launching a variety of interesting and educational Ergonomics Continuing Education seminars for UCLA Ergo Advocates. We have a line-up of classes which include the Alexander Technique, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about a Chair, Mousing 101, Standing versus Sitting, and many more!
We are transitioning to an ergonomics program that utilizes more preventative efforts. One of these efforts is providing you, our awesome advocates with the most up to date ergonomics knowledge. We are requiring that all advocates take one continuing education class per quarter. It will be a way to sharpen your skills as an advocate and also a chance to connect with the UCLA Ergo community.
Please check our online schedule of classes for the current quarter and sign up for a class.
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.
