Five FP&M departments exhibited posters at UW–Madison’s annual Showcase event which provides an opportunity for colleagues from across the UW–Madison campus to share best practices, learn from each other’s successes, and connect. The event is free and open to all faculty, staff, students, and community members.
The 2022 Showcase event was held at Union South on March 8. See what the different FP&M departments exhibited, below:
Environment, Health & Safety
The poster “Partnering for Proactive & Preventative Safety — EH&S and SMPH Join Forces Across Campus” was exhibited by Carrie Ensrud, Aaron McCoy, and Kathy Krasny.
Partnering for Proactive and Preventative Safety — EH&S and SMPH Join Forces Across Campus
To address safety concerns and improve safety communications, a team of Environment, Health, & Safety (EH&S) and School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) staff collaborated to create a new safety training. It provides researchers with an overview of safety guidelines, EH&S services and incorporates varied safety topics such as biological, radiation, and chemical. This collaboration also led to the creation of several new posters and other helpful resources. The new training and associated communication tools provide essential information to employees working within SMPH facilities, making their day-to-day lives simpler and keeping them safer.
Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor
The poster, “Fine-Tuning the Employee Experience Through Training & Development and Onboarding Resources” was exhibited by Human Resources staff including Kayla Ruplinger and Alicia Meyer.
Fine-Tuning the Employee Experience Through Training & Development and Onboarding Resources
This poster examines how to develop a skilled and engaged workforce by offering the right learning content at the right time in the employee lifecycle and connect learning to regular development conversations using an accessible, central source that can be sorted by new TTC Business Title and FP&M’s Criteria for Success competencies.
Office of Sustainability
The poster, “Sustainability & Inclusive Design” was exhibited by Missy Nergard. She also gave a Flash Talk presentation about this topic.
Sustainability & Inclusive Design
Does the space in which you work, learn, or teach feel welcoming? Does the light cause headaches? Do the seats fit all types of bodies? Are areas of respite available? Our campus serves a highly diverse community of learners, instructors, and researchers. Learn how the Office of Sustainability blends the research on learning, wellbeing, and equity with the imperatives of climate change and resource conservation to design a campus optimized for learning and resource conservation.
The poster “Sustainability Advisory Council” was exhibited by Alex Frank.
Sustainability Advisory Council
The Sustainability Advisory Council (SAC) was developed to provide recommendations to the provost and the vice chancellor for finance and administration on how to align the university’s mission, current campus strategic plans, the 2010 Sustainability Initiative Task Force Report, the Second Nature Resilience Commitment, and our legacy of resource stewardship to advance sustainability at UW–Madison.
The poster, “Preventive Maintenance Transformation — Smarter Building Assets Lay Groundwork for Big-Picture Decisions” was exhibited by Craig Mayer, Nate Kosharek, and Eric Vondra. The team also gave a Flash Talk presentation about this topic.
Preventive Maintenance Transformation— Smarter Building Assets Lay Groundwork for Big-Picture Decisions
This poster describes Facilities Planning and Management’s development of a world-class preventive maintenance program. We have inventoried over 50,000 assets and generated over 60,000 unique preventive maintenance activities in our new Integrated Work Management System.
Our asset management approach has been recognized by industry as a best practice. Identifying and tracking individual work activities has significantly improved the effectiveness of our maintenance activities. We are proactively identifying and correcting critical issues before any impact to the campus community. This effort will result in an improved campus environment, increased sustainability, and a more effective and efficient maintenance organization.
The poster, “Making Our Mark — Transportation Services Reinvents Campus Roadway Painting” was exhibited by Lauren Hawley and Troy Ruland.
Making Our Mark — Transportation Services Reinvents Campus Roadway Painting
In 2021, Transportation Services became responsible for painting all roadways, bike lanes, and crosswalks on the UW–Madison campus. This poster shows how Transportation Services reinvented the process for campus roadway marking and worked around-the-clock to place approximately 100,000 linear feet of paint on campus roads and bike paths during January–September 2021. The poster also illustrates how roadway markings function across the multi-modal campus transportation infrastructure to define traffic flows and promote safety.
