Ergonomics is the science of fitting a workplace to a user’s needs to increase efficiency and productivity and reduce discomfort. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s) are injuries and disorders that affect the human body’s movement or musculoskeletal system – muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, blood vessels etc.


The goal of the campus ergonomics program is to improve employee wellbeing through the reduction of workplace discomfort and the identification and control of ergonomic hazards that may result in MSD’s. California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 8 §5110 also requires the campus to have an ergonomic program. 

Components of the program include:

  • Worksite analysis/assessment
  • Hazard prevention and control
  • Training and education
  • Medical management
