UCLA Health Ergonomics is unable to conduct evaluations of employee home workstations. Workstation setup guidelines can be found here:
Alternative resources may be available and will be addressed on a case by case basis. Supervisors of staff reporting discomfort associated with their home workstation setup should submit an inquiry to [email protected]. To request a remote evaluation, please submit an EHS Service Request.
Employees can access the RSS Computer Ergonomics online training via the UC Risk and Safety Solutions website for additional information about reducing risks associated with the development of musculoskeletal disorders.
Departments should not allow staff to remove furniture from their primary work location for use at home. University property such as chairs, desks, and sit/stand units should remain at the assigned workstation. This also includes peripherals such as keyboards and mice.
Several UC system suppliers have extended promotional pricing to UCLA Health employees for the purchase of highly adjustable ergonomic task chairs and height adjustable desks. Departments are not eligible for this pricing and should use the prevailing contracts for each supplier. Applicable items, flyers, and coupon codes are available to UCLA Health employees at the links below. Contact UCLA Health EH&S for specification assistance or product recommendations. Final specification is at the discretion of the purchaser.
