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

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

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.

Elder Care

The Elder Care Program offers confidential, free assistance to UC Berkeley faculty, staff, visiting scholars, and postdocs who are caring for or concerned about an elder or dependent adult. We also provide services to employees of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Ergonomics

The Ergonomics Program promotes healthy campus work environments through workshops, consultation and coordination of the campus network of departmental computer workstation evaluators. Our goal is to help fit jobs to people.

Occupational Health

Occupational Health provides a full scope of services for employees at the University of California, Berkeley including treatment for work-related injuries, screenings for occupational needs, and information concerning health-related occupational hazards. 

Wellness

The Wellness Program in partnership with several campus departments, strives to foster a healthy work environment and to provide tools and resources to enhance and support the health and well-being of faculty, staff, visiting scholars, and postdocs.

Work/Life

The Work/Life Program identifies and recommends policies and practices, and develops services and programs that enable faculty and staff to be productive members of the campus community while meeting personal and family obligations.
