SAFETYmatters - Nominations Sought for Safety Award

Practicing safety at the University of Iowa has never been more pertinent than it is today, in the midst of a global pandemic. As the university begins to transition back to campus for work, the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) office is looking for examples of faculty, staff, and students who are putting safety first in innovative ways.

EHS is offering an award to formally recognize those who are having a positive impact on safety in workspaces on campus.  This award is one small way for EHS to stress the importance of taking concrete steps to make sure no one is negatively impacted by COVID-19, slips/trips/falls, chemical exposure, or other potential risks.

To nominate someone for a safety award, submit the Individual Nomination Form through Workflow, using a HawkID (people can be nominated any time throughout the year). Additional information on EHS’s Reward and Recognition Program can be found here.
