Safety Incentive Program


To raise University of Alaska Fairbanks' (UAF) employee awareness of federal, state, and local occupational safety and health requirements. This program promotes workplace safety through positive reinforcement of observed safe behaviors and voluntary participation in various safety/risk programs. Our goal is to promote open discussion about safety at all levels of management, leading to safer workplace behaviors, reduction in workplace injuries, and laying the foundation to build a better safety culture at UAF.   Fewer workplace accidents and injuries is a win-win situation for everyone involved!

How to Participate:

There are several ways UAF employees can participate in this program. Incentive award winners may be recognized “on-the-spot”, when observed working in a safe manner, as well as drawn from a pool of entries for the award period (typically quarterly with a year-end grand prize and special award presentation). Participating employees are eligible for incentive awards ranging from UAF Book Store and local eatery gift cards, to movie pass packages, even an EHSRM sponsored lunch for your department.

All UAF Employees may participate in the following incentive award areas.

  • Individuals completing 100% of BASIC Safety Training requirements
  • Individuals submitting a Loss Prevention Application
  • Individuals submitting an Unsafe Condition (UC) Report
  • Individuals submitting a Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) for review
  • Individuals observed working in a safe manner or otherwise promoting safety
  • Safety Challenge Question
  • Safety Spirit Award 

NOTE: There is no limit on how many times an individual can participate in any award.   All final decisions rest with EHSRM.

Important information to know about incentive gifts and taxes: Gift cards and other awards are all taxable regardless of the monetary value. Their value will be added to the employees income for tax purposes.
