Be Smart About Safety

Each year, Office of the President Risk Services budgets a small amount of its total budget allocation to fund proactive Loss Prevention and Loss Control projects.  This funding is intended for projects specific to the purpose of reducing the frequency and/or severity of potential loss in the areas of workers’ compensation, general liability, employment, auto and property programs.

The UC Santa Cruz Be Smart About Safety (BSAS) management committee receives, reviews and recommends approval of department requests for program funds. 

Overall guidelines for the BSAS program

Submit a BSAS Funding Proposal

Campus units and departments submit the BSAS Funding Proposal to communicate their funding request internally within the campus. If the proposal is accepted by the campus, then UCSC BSAS staff will submit an application to Office of the President. Campus units and departments do not directly submit the online application described in the Frequently Asked Questions.
