Safety at Work
If you’re working late, let someone know where you are and how long you expect to be; or better yet, plan in advance to have a co-worker stay with you.
Keep your purse or wallet locked in a drawer or filing cabinet at all times.
Politely ask strangers who they are visiting and offer to help find the person; if you are suspicious of the person contact Public Safety or the Police.
Check the identification of any maintenance or repair personnel.
Keep emergency phone numbers posted near your phone.
Know your office emergency evacuation plan.
If possible, employees should wear IDs.
Be cautious if using restrooms, elevators or stairwells that are isolated or poorly lit; or go with a friend.
Keep money, check books, or other valuable items out of sight.
Report any suspicious, threatening or alarming behavior of others to your supervisor or Public Safety/Police immediately.
Record the serial numbers, brand names and descriptions of property or valuables that are kept in your office. Keep a duplicate copy of this information and a photo of the item at another location. It can be used later to recover stolen property.
Insure that all university property is properly engraved; for personal items, engrave your driver's license number and home state on the item.
Ask strangers in your office to identify themselves.
