There are some simple things you can do to stay safe at work:

  • Keep your wallet, keys, purse, and other valuables with you at all times or locked in a drawer.
  • Don’t stay late if you’ll be alone in the office. Create a buddy system for walking to parking lots after hours.
  • Report broken or flickering lights and doors that do not secure properly so they can be quickly repaired..
  • If you notice signs of potential violence in a fellow employee, report this to your supervisor.
  • Immediately report all incidents of sexual harassment.
  • Know your department’s emergency plan for fire and severe weather evacuations.
