SAFETY PERCEPTION SURVEY PARTICIPATION
We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the employees who took the time to respond to our recent 2016 UAF Safety Perception survey. Over 50% of our fellow employees participated in this important survey which helps us assess the current status of UAF’s safety culture. We asked your opinion on many safety-related questions spanning several key areas to include general safety, accountability, safety training, supervision and management, safety policies and programs, and recognition. Our 2012 survey asked the same questions and was the catalyst for many of the significant positive changes we see today, such as a UAF Health and Safety policy and streamlined online safety training program.
We are currently reviewing all the responses and comparing them to our 2012 results. While we’ve already identified several areas with significant improvement over the last few years, we will also no doubt find areas we can still improve upon. We will continue to work hard to make our programs better and improve safety for our entire UAF community. Please be on the lookout for our final report in the coming weeks. Again, thank you for your continuing support!
