Occupational Safety

The goal of the Campus Safety Office is to avoid injuries in the scope of work and mitigate hazards on campus.  We provide workplace inspections and work with you to ensure a safe work environment.  We also provide training in many subject areas to meet your needs.  
Did you know that ice cleats are available free of charge from the EHSRM office?  Stop by and pick up some cleats or call to schedule a "Cleats for the Feet" open house, and we will come to your department to provide training and cleats.  Please contact this office to obtain cleats for community campuses.
Contact us for questions about the field safety emergency plan, to develop Standard Operating Procedures, or with a concern.  We've got you covered.

The UAF Remote Emergency Plan is intended to provide UAF travelers with a sound action plan to cope with emergencies encountered during official travel at field locations within the United States and abroad. Your Department/Institute Director must also review and acknowledge (approve) your plan prior to travel. A basic Field Field Emergency Plan template is found below.

Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) is the breaking down of a job into its component steps and then evaluating each step, looking for hazards. Each hazard is then corrected or a method of worker protection (safe practice or PPE) is identified. Additional requirements for worker training, certification, authorization, etc., may also be identified for the process or job. The final product is a written document….a standard of safe operation for a particular job.


UAF employees can contact our office at 907-474-5476, or stop by our office location at 825 Alumni Drive, Fairbanks, to procure a free pair of ice cleats.  Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Along with other specialists within EHSRM, we can visit your building, jobsite, or special project and assist you with mitigating hazards.

New Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) will be added all of the time. Check back or call the Campus Safety Officer if you are interested to develop a new SOP. Please use the generic SOP form below to start any new SOPs.

First aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and automated external defibrillator (AED) training can save a life.  Contact the Campus Safety Officer to schedule a class for your department.

Through our STOP THE BLEED® course, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and intervene effectively. Take the course and become empowered to make a life or death difference when a bleeding emergency occurs. STOP THE BLEED®. Save a Life!
