Policy against Harassment, Intimidation, or Discrimination

Alaska Operating Engineers/Employers Training Trust (AOEETT) is committed to providing a work environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and conduct that can be considered harassing, coercive, threatening, intimidating and/or disruptive, including sexual harassment. AOEETT will not tolerate any actions, words, jokes, or comments based on a person’s sex, race, color, national origin, age, religion, disability, marital status, parenthood or any other legally protected characteristic. 
“Coercive, threatening, or intimidating” means verbal and non-verbal conduct that displays or threatens physical or verbal aggression towards others. Accordingly, threats of violence, even when said in jest, will be taken seriously and investigated for possible disciplinary action including dismissal from the program. 
“Harassment” means discriminatory conduct based on the protected classes above. Racially derogatory comments or behavior is unlawful harassment and, if there is a frequency pattern of conduct can lead to a legal claim of “hostile work environment”.
Similarly, derogatory comments or behavior about a particular person’s religion could be labeled unlawful harassment because it is unlawful to discriminate based on religion. 
These are just several examples. The same could be said about the other protected classes as well. 
“Sexual Harassment” is unlawful harassment based on gender. It has three distinct characteristics:
• Sexual in nature
• Is not wanted (unwelcome)
• Submission to or rejection of the conduct affects the terms and conditions of the employment of the victim or creates a hostile work environment
The following is a partial list of sexual harassment examples:
• Unwanted sexual advances
• Offering employment benefits in exchange for sexual favors
• Making threatening reprisals after a negative response to sexual advances
• Visual conduct that included leering, making sexual gestures, or displaying of sexually suggestive objects, pictures, cartoons or posters
• Verbal conduct that includes making or using derogatory comments, epithets, slurs, or jokes
• Verbal sexual advances or propositions
• Verbal abuse of a sexual nature, graphic verbal commentaries about an individual’s body, sexually degrading words used to describe an individual, or suggestive or obscene letters, notes, or invitations
• Physical conduct that includes touching, assaulting, or impeding or blocking movements
Unwelcome sexual advances (either verbal or physical), requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when: (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment; (2) submission or rejection of the conduct is used as a basis for making employment decisions; or, (3) the conduct has the purpose of effect of interfering with work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment. 
If you experience or witness sexual or other unlawful harassment at work, including threatening behavior, report it immediately to your supervisor. If your supervisor is unavailable or you believe it would be inappropriate to discuss with your supervisor, you should immediately contact the Administrator or any other member of management. Punishment or reprisal will not result from reporting, questioning or presenting concerns about sexual harassment. 
Federal and state law requires a workplace free from sexual harassment. Failure to address workplace issues regarding sexual harassment may subject the company to liability. Accordingly, failure to report sexual harassment is a violation of this policy. All allegations of sexual harassment will be quickly and discreetly investigated. To the extent possible, your confidentiality and the confidentiality of any witnesses and the alleged harasser will be protected against unnecessary disclosure. When the investigation is completed, you will be informed of the outcome of the investigation. 
Any supervisor or manager who becomes aware of possible sexual or other unlawful harassment must immediately advise the Administrator or any member of management so it can be investigated in a timely and confidential manner. Any employee who engages in sexual or other unlawful harassment will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
By signing below, I acknowledge that I have received and understand the policy against Harassment, Intimidation and Discrimination. 


Know Your Risk

Learn About Vaccination

Information in this handout has been gathered from the Alaska Postsecondary Student Immunization Act (HB185), signed into law effective May 18, 2005.  Additional information was gathered from the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services’ Division of Public Health and the Web site of the American College Health Association at  The Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education (ACPE) cannot provide medical information and is not responsible for any medical information provided to schools or to students.  For questions specific to meningitis, immunization, and related diseases, please consult a qualified medical professional.

Did you know?

  • Meningococcal disease is a contagious but largely preventable bacterial infection that most often leads to meningitis, an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, or a condition called meningococcal septicemia, which is an infection of the blood.
  • Meningococcal disease is caused by bacteria called Neisseria meningitidis that are spread person-to-person through the air (usually by sneezing or coughing), through direct contact with an infected person, such as oral contact with shared items like cigarettes or drinking glasses, or through intimate contact, such as kissing. This disease is not as contagious as things like the common cold or the flu, and it is not spread by casual contact or by simply breathing the air where a person with meningitis has been.
  • Meningococcal disease is a serious illness that can lead to death within a few hours of onset; one out of ten cases is fatal, and in one out of seven survivors it can lead to severe and permanent disabilities, such as brain damage, hearing loss, seizures, or limb amputation.

What are the symptoms of meningococcal disease?

High fever, headache, and stiff neck are common symptoms of meningitis in anyone over the age of 2 years. A rash may also develop over parts of the body, or the entire body. Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, discomfort looking into bright lights, confusion, and sleepiness. These symptoms can develop over several hours, or they may take 1 to 2 days. As the disease progresses, seizures may develop. If you notice these symptoms – in yourself, friends, or others – you should contact your college health service or local hospital immediately.

Who is at risk for meningococcal disease?

  • Anyone can get meningococcal meningitis, but scientific evidence suggests that college freshmen living in campus housing are at moderately increased risk to get this disease when compared to the general college population. The reasons for this increased risk are still not known for certain, but factors may include such things as crowded living situations, bar patronage, active or passive smoking, irregular sleep patterns, and sharing personal items.


  • Other risk groups include infants and young children, household contacts to a person with meningococcal disease, refugees from parts of the world with high rates of meningococcal disease, laboratory workers who work with this bacteria, and military recruits.

Are there vaccines against meningococcal disease?

Yes, there are two safe and effective vaccines that protect against four strains of the bacteria that cause meningococcal disease – serogroups A, C, Y, and W135. Immunization against meningococcal disease will decrease the risk of contracting the illness from these meningococcal strains.

How can meningococcal disease be prevented?

  • Many cases of meningococcal disease can be prevented. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College Health Association recommend that all first-year students living in residence halls be vaccinated against meningococcal disease. All other college students under the age of 25 years who wish to reduce their risk for the disease may choose to be vaccinated.


  • Vaccination is safe and effective. It protects against four of the five most common strains (or types) of bacteria that cause meningitis. Approximately 70 to 80 percent of cases in the college age group are caused by strains that are potentially vaccine-preventable. The most commonly reported adverse reactions among adolescents and adults in clinical studies were pain at the injection site, headache, and fatigue. These respond to simple measures (ibuprofen or acetaminophen) and resolve spontaneously within a few days
