Repetitive Motion Injuries

The University has had in effect for a number of years a program to eliminate repetitive motion injuries. This program focused primarily on computer work station arrangement, back safety and proper lifting techniques.

In response to the passage of section 6357 of the State Labor Code and the subsequent enactment of section 5110 (Repetitive Motion Injuries) in Title 8, California Code of Regulations, the University program was expanded to include all repetitive motion injuries.

Training is periodically scheduled by EH&S. Worksite evaluations are conducted by EH&S staff and by an ergonomic consultant to the University.
