Switch to the 100% recyclable

mattress and join the somnum Zero Landfill mattress recycling program

SUSTAINABLE MATTRESSES
FOR SUSTAINABLE INITIATIVES
The EnviroSpring is a 100% recyclable mattress built for comfort and
durability in a dormitory or collegiate housing setting. The EnviroSpring's
core is constructed using a unique blend of virgin and recycled fiber
and innovative cushioning solutions made from recyclable polymers.
The EnviroSpring is a "dual density" mattress; featuring a softer side
and a firmer side to accommodate differing sleep types.
This new mattress technology is key to our recycling process;
a closed loop production process that allows us to break
down previously used EnviroSpring mattresses and use
the reprocessed materials to create a new EnviroSpring
mattress. Not repurposing, but actually reusing all the
materials for a next generation mattress!

expertise in insurance policies and
the claims process. To expedite
the claim submission process, it
is helpful to provide a well-written
report to document how the fraud
transpired, with dates, emails, and
any supporting documents. A wellorganized packet can result in faster
claims processing.
Safeguarding university assets
against fraud is everyone's
responsibility, and there are many
ways to help raise awareness.
Subscriptions to alerts can provide
information about emerging trends.
Fraud prevention training is offered to
all employees at UCSF. The training
helps staff understand how scams
are executed and ways to safeguard
against them.
Scammers will continue to
target universities and healthcare
organizations. To safeguard assets,
top priority should be on closing
any control gaps. Implementing
streamlined processes in supplier
profile maintenance helps achieve
effective controls that ultimately will
prevent fraud. Using intelligence tools
to flag unusual changes helps detect
and prevent frauds. It is important to
establish a fraud-handling process
that expedites actions to minimize
losses and lead to criminal arrests.
