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 the online Ergonomics for Computer Users (ANR) training and assessment is a four-step process:

  1. Complete your Profile (by identifying the type of computer you use for work and any other factors that may affect you)
  2. Take the Ergonomics for Computer Users E-learning Training,
  3. Complete the Risk Assessment survey for your specific workstation, computer equipment, and conditions.
  4. Review your Healthy Working Plan to see what actions are recommended to improve your workstation ergonomics.

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 course, “Ergonomics for Computer Users (ANR).” Depending on your computer’s security settings, you may need to disable your pop-up blocker, or allow pop-ups for uc.sumtotal.host

When the online course begins, click on the links on the middle right part of the screen to navigate through the steps. Complete your (1) Profile(2) E-Learning training module, and (3) Risk Assessment. At the conclusion of the Risk Assessment, you will be provided with your (4) My Healthy Working Plan, 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 a report of your results, click on the "Risk Assessment" link under the Resources section, near the bottom of the screen. It is also a good idea to print or save a pdf file of your Healthy Working Risk Assessment, 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.

As you review and implement actions from your Healthy Working Risk Assessment Report, you can return to your Healthy Working Plan and mark items as “Resolved.” In this way your online Healthy Working Plan and Risk Assessment report is a working document that can record your progress in making your workstation a better fit.
