Policy 316 – Employee Photo Identification Badge/ONE Card

Date Issued: 10/80
Date Revised: 02/13

All new employees of UAB are issued a photo identification badge/ONE Card. Hospital employees have their ONE Card made prior to or during New Employee Orientation. University employees are notified where to go to have their ONE Card made. UAB Hospital employees must wear their ONE Card in plain view, at collar/shoulder level, while on duty in accordance with the Hospital dress code policy.  UAB employees are encouraged to wear their ONE Card, but should carry the ONE Card with them while on campus. 

The ONE Card is required identification for use at certain UAB facilities, such as libraries, and for discounts available at the cafeterias and special events.

Hospital Personnel Support Services has the primary responsibility for issuing ONE Cards for Hospital employees. University ONE Cards may be issued by Physical Security or at other carding locations. The appropriate department should be contacted concerning replacement of lost badges.  At termination of employment, the ONE Card must be turned in to a ONE Card office, your supervisor or Human Resources.

For additional information regarding the ONE Card and carding locations, reference the ONE Card Guidelines.
