Be Well at Work Faculty/Staff Health Programs improve employee health and well-being, leading to a more engaged and productive workforce.
This is accomplished by providing prevention services addressing ergonomics, wellness, and work/life through a continuum of treatment services from employee assistance, occupational health, and disability services. Read about each program below.
Disability Management provides employees and departments with a full range of disability-related assistance and consultation, including workers’ compensation, injury prevention, return-to-work, transitional work, reasonable accommodation, and departmental training.
Employee Assistance is the campus faculty/staff program providing free, confidential problem assessment and referral for UC Berkeley faculty, staff, visiting scholars, and postdocs. It is also the employee assistance program for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
