The 2016 UAF Employee Safety Perception Survey (March 21 - April 4)  Participate and win!
An organization’s success can be tied directly to its level of safety culture — the value each one of us places on safety and integrates into every aspect of our work. All of us have the right to work safely. We must also share the responsibility for helping protect ourselves and our co-workers. By having a great safety culture at UAF, we can expect fewer accidents and injuries, fewer regulatory citations, and fewer losses due to liability.
To understand where UAF stands with our current safety culture, we first must understand what our people think about safety. One way to do this is to ask some basic questions about how we conduct ourselves on a day-to-day basis regarding safety. Key areas we’ll look at include:
•    Management commitment, leadership and accountability
•    Supervisor and employee participation
•    Hazard identification and control 
•    Incident/accident investigation
•    Safety policies, regulations and rules
•    Education and training

Chancellor Powers will soon ask all UAF employees, including staff, faculty and student employees, to complete a short online opinion survey about these areas. It’s important that everyone take a few minutes to complete this survey so we can identify gaps in our current safety culture that we can address through planning and program changes.  The survey, sponsored by Environmental, Health, Safety and Risk Management, will be administered by a neutral outside agency, with results and recommendations provided to UAF leadership. When you see this survey in your email, please do not delete it. Your input is necessary and valuable, and will help shape our safety culture at UAF. To show our appreciation for providing your opinions, employees who fill out the survey will also be eligible for some great incentives which include $25-$50 gift cards and Samsung Galaxy Tab A's.

Thank you for helping make UAF safer and stronger.
