Eligibility and Ergonomic Funding

Human Resources covers the cost of the ergonomic assessment evaluations and follow up appointments to full time employees or employees who are experiencing pain or discomfort. In addition, Human Resources provides employees a one-time credit up to $200 every 5 years for ergonomic equipment recommended during the assessment. The intent of the $200 subsidy is to provide financial support to campus departments to help to promote comfort at the work station as well as prevent and/or minimize the effects of repetitive motion injuries. Human Resources will not cover ergonomic equipment replacements. Please note that at this time, the Human Resources ergo budget is not funding equipment orders for employees working remotely. 

If you are experiencing pain that you believe is work-related, please email leaves@usfca.edu or call (415) 422-4801 to submit a workers' compensation claim.
