The University of North Florida was recently awarded the Interagency Advisory Council on Loss Prevention Award of Distinction for Loss Prevention by the State Department of Financial Services

This is the second consecutive year UNF has received the safety award for distinction in risk management best practices, which was presented May 13 at the Interagency Advisory Council Loss Prevention Meeting in Tallahassee.

“UNF is recognized by the Interagency Advisory Council on Loss Prevention for having a safety program that far exceeds minimum standards,” said Jim McClay, risk services administrator for the State Department of Financial Services, Division of Risk Management.

The University received the Silver Standard Award, which recognizes UNF’s dedicated efforts in loss prevention through an objective comparison of its safety program to establish best practices in loss prevention.

“I am very appreciative of my staff’s dedication and professional service they have put forth to achieve this award and I’m proud for UNF to be recognized in this way,” said Dan Endicott, director for UNF’s Environmental Health, Safety, Risk Management and Building Code Administration.

The Department of Environmental Health, Safety, Risk Management and Building Code Administration at UNF strives to maintain high quality and innovative programs, policies and procedures, which reflect a commitment to integrity, honesty, professionalism and teamwork.
