THINK SAFE – BE SAFE

BackMany jobs require lifting, carrying, or moving objects in the workplace. Some employees may lift only small objects, while others are required to move heavy construction material or debris. No matter what type of lifting you are required to perform, always take precautions to reduce exposure to the risks associated with this activity. While the time-tested, "bend-at-the-knees" method is suitable for lighter objects, other procedures and practices may be a better option for heavy lifting. For tips on safe lifting and carrying, visit this website.

 

USF TRADITIONS

 

GGGuysWe hope you are enjoying learning about the many traditions that exist here at USF. This issue is about the Green & Gold Guys; we're sure you've seen them at many athletic events. The Green and Gold Guys and their painted bodies first appeared in 2000 as a crazy spirit idea of two freshman students. The Green and Gold guys are at all home football and basketball games and even make road game appearances. In 2003 a second painted group of students, calling themselves The Beef Studs, also took to USF spirit duty.

 

USF NIGHT AT THE RAYS

 

The 6th Annual USF Night at the Rays takes place Saturday, August 3, at 7:10 p.m. Come out in support of our hometown team and join fellow USF employees, students and alumni as the Tampa Bay Rays take on the San Francisco Giants. For more information, visit this website.

 

DID YOU KNOW

MLK

One of the best-known gathering places on the USF Tampa campus is the Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Plaza. Up until the mid-nineties, the plaza was a treeless expanse of crisscrossed sidewalks marked only with a small bust of the legendary civil rights activist. On November 13, 1996, after extensive renovations, the new MLK Plaza was dedicated and featured a trellised colonnade, benches and a serene reflecting pool with stone tablets engraved with a portion of Dr. King's famous "I Have a Dream" speech.
