Ergonomic Best Practices


PG&E provides a robust office and industrial ergonomics program, with the primary goal of preventing or reducing the severity of musculoskeletal injuries. In this section, please find FAQs and resources to help ensure you have an ergonomic workspace at home. Additionally, you can reach out to the Office Ergonomics inbox at officeergonomics@pge.com or visit the Office Ergonomic Website.


Note: PG&E’s ergonomics program is available for employees and Hiring Hall employees only. Non-employee workers must work with their supplier for any ergonomic needs.


You can also watch this supplemental video from the Occupational Health Team for an overview of some ergonomic safety offerings.

Working Outside the State of California


Working outside of California is currently not permitted due to regulatory and legal requirements for the Company that arise when employees work from another state. There are limited exceptions to this policy.

Working Securely From Home


Thoughts of security may fall to the wayside if you’re working from home – but think again! Security controls must be every bit as strong in your home environment as they are in the office. Also, please read this Five Minute Meeting for more information about Mail Delivery Guidance (PDF, 131 KB).
