Inclement Weather Safety Tips for the Winter

The Pacific University Health and Safety Committee would like everyone to have a safe and enjoyable winter season. Cold weather can bring changing conditions to campus and the surrounding areas. Members of the Pacific University community are encouraged to increase their awareness when walking on campus. With increased precipitation, surfaces can become slippery quickly - inside and outside buildings.

It is understood that space heaters are also used more frequently in winter months. Community members are advised to plug space heaters directly into wall outlets, not power strips, and to make sure that space heaters have tip over protection.

All employees are encouraged to review and share the Inclement Weather procedures and ensure that they are signed up for Boxer Alerts.

Due to multiple satellite locations, it's important that employees communicate safe travel options with their respective supervisors and team members.
