The UAF Safety Policy was signed by Chancellor Rogers on March 3, 2015.  The policy combines Occupational, Personal, Community and Fire Safety into one document which applies to all employees, students, and volunteers at UAF campuses.  Take a look and see what your responsibilities under the policy are.
