During this time of transition please keep in mind that all ergonomic services that we provide are still available whether you have returned to campus, are working remotely, or doing a combination of the two. Naturally, we have changed the way we conduct both individual consultations and group trainings. We will continue to update and expand this web site as information becomes available and pertinent to our needs. Please look around the site, take a self-check of your workspace if you haven't done so, and contact us with any questions or to schedule a consultation.
Ergonomics is the study of the relationship between people, their work, and their work environment. The purpose of CSU East Bay's Ergonomics Program is to promote employee health by decreasing workplace exposure to ergonomic risk factors.
Ergonomic assessments are available to all staff, faculty, and student assistants by request. It is encouraged that all employees take advantage of this service, especially for any discomfort or difficulty experienced while working. Additionally, ergonomic consultations can be useful for office moves, furniture changes, new computer equipment, or to be proactive.

In addition to individual ergonomic assessments, we offer ergonomic group classes, back safety classes, stretching/exercise instruction, and consultations about furniture or equipment to all University staff and faculty, regardless of job type, regardless of ability. All activities can be modified to comply with any requirements for precautionary measures concerning social interaction.
