Office Hazards

Ergonomic Hazards

Ergonomic injuries can occur if you do not perform a self-evaluation of your work environment, the way you work, and how you organize your workflow. Ergonomic training will help you set up your workplace.

Travel and Transportation

Don’t forget to plan for safe travel. International travel is required to be registered in UC Away and recommended for everyone else. Driving is the most hazardous work-related activity in this department. Please use seat belts and defensive driving. Campus drivers are required to complete a safe driver training course and renew it every 3 years.

Bicycle Safety

Every Fall a new class of Freshmen arrive. There are many injuries as they learn how to bicycle safely in this crowded environment.
