Campuswide Ergonomics Program Prevents Injuries and Saves Money

Carson, CA – There has been a drastic reduction in the frequency and severity of office injuries around the CSUDH campus, thanks to the ergonomics program.

Marco Guardi, director, Risk Management & Environmental Health & Safety, submitted a summary of the program’s success, resulting in the program winning the California Association of Joint Powers Authorities’ (CAJPA) Public Entity Excellence in Risk Services (PEERS) award. Developed in response to the rise in injuries in 2000-01, the program actually saves the University money. Its first priority is to create the proper ergonomic environment for all employees.

“The program is open to all,” Guardi says, “and because of its recognized benefit to both employees and the campus, I strongly encourage employees to participate.”

Guardi also thanks Rosanna Aspacio, Health & Safety Specialist, and Tiffany Bell, Workers’ Compensation Analyst, for the program’s continued success.

Employees who are interested in attending ergonomics training should contact Rosanna Aspacio at (310) 243-3001.
