Any university employee may apply for LP projects.   LP projects can also be requested by department heads or campus environmental, health, safety, and risk management (EHSRM) staff.  

Please note that all loss prevention applications must be submitted by May 31, 2017 including all supporting documentation (invoice and banner screen).  There will be no exceptions.

Loss Prevention

1.    Review Loss Prevention Guidelines and Information 

     LP Guidelines and Information

2.    Identify the problem and develop a plan to mitigate the risk

3.  Provide supporting evidence for your application

This can be completed by a risk assessment through risk management or previous incident reports, police reports, Cause of Loss Reports, or any other supporting data available.

4.   Calculate costs and savings that will arise out of the LP project

In many cases, this will be a rough estimate.   However, please do your best to develop and clearly demonstrate direct or indirect costs and savings that could be realized as a result of implementing your proposed LP project.

5.    Fill out a Loss Prevention funding application.

      Loss Prevention funding application form

6.    Get approval signature from your appropriate department head or supervisor.

This step is to confirm that management can support your plan as well as provide additional funding that may be necessary if the plan exceeds the LP funding limit or matching funding is required.

7.    Submit your application to campus EHSRM office.

Please e-mail the complete application to fisgrigg@alaska.edu.  EHSRM office will perform the initial review and approval.   Once approved by the campus EHSRM office, the application will be forwarded to the System Office of Risk Services for review and final approval.   EHSRM will notify you of the final approval.  NOTE:  ERGONOMIC LP APPLICATIONS WILL GO THROUGH CAROL SHAFFORD DIRECTLY.

 8. If approved, implement the project, and cooperate with any post implementation follow ups or surveys by EHSRM staff.
