Ergonomic Training and Assessment

UC’s online ergonomic training and assessment program is now based on the UC Learning Center. For most UCANR employees, this will require login using your UC Davis credentials.

Completing your online assessment is a two-step process:

  1. Take the Ergonomic Training,
  2. Complete the Ergonomic Self-Assessment for your specific workstation and conditions.

Once you login, click on the links in your 'Status panel' (on the upper right part of the screen) to activate the (1) Ergonomics training and (2) Ergonomic Self-Assessment modules. At the conclusion of the Self-Assessment, you will be provided with your (3) Personal Recommendation Report, which will supply a list of tasks to help you make adjustments or modifications to your workstation that will allow you to work more comfortably. To view the results of previous training or assessment data click on 'Results.' It is also a good idea to print or create a pdf file of your Personal Recommendation Report, so you can refer to the recommendations offline. This can also help us consult with you on making modifications to improve your comfort at your workstation.

To access the training and begin the process, use this LINK to UC Learning Center

Once you have logged in to the UC Learning Center, the link above should take you directly to the eCourse, “Ergonomics for Computer Users.” Depending on your computer’s security settings, you may need to disable your pop-up blocker, or allow pop-ups for uc.sumtotal.host

As you review and implement actions from your Personal Recommendation Report, you can return to the program and mark items as “Issue Unresolved,” “Issue Improved,” or “Issue Resolved.” In this way your online Personal Recommendation Report is a working document that can record your progress in making your workstation a better fit.

If you feel that you need additional help or an on-site assessment, please complete the survey below.
