UC Safety Spotlight Newsletter

The purpose of the Safety Spotlight publication series is to provide information that is critical to the success of our safety programs systemwide.

In the monthly publications, you will find links to posters, training presentations, videos, and other resources that will help your office, laboratory, or department develop a robust safety program. Following a safety program and practicing safe work habits increases productivity in the work environment and reduces injuries and illnesses. This allows you to enjoy your time outside of work to the fullest. Each month, the spotlight will focus on a specific workplace safety topic, drawing on the expertise from staff in Occupational Health Services, Environmental Health & Safety, Emergency/Business Continuity Management, and the Police and Fire Departments.
