Ergonomics involves the arrangement of the workplace environment to fit the person. When ergonomics is applied correctly, stress and many potential injuries/disorders associated with the overuse of muscles, bad posture and repeated tasks can be reduced. The major goal of ergonomics is to fit the job to the individual.

Ergonomics Self Help:

If, after completing the Clerical Workstation Assessment with the employee's supervisor and the employee feels that further assistance is needed, the supervisor may contact the Risk Manager.

Insurance Certificates:

A certificate of insurance demonstrates the insurance coverage carried by an organization. Outside parties may ask Victor Valley College to confirm various types of insurance in connection to business agreements, athletic events, as well as practicum agreements with hospitals and schools. Due to insurance carrier requirements, these requests must be made in writing with proper supporting documentation (contract documents). To request a certificate of coverage, contact Estela Wansten for information, (760) 245-4271 ext. 2199
