Personal safety

Personal safety

Have a safety plan, plan your day, look at your transport needs, ensure that someone will know when you are overdue travelling home.

Questions to ask yourself regarding personal safety:

  • Am I remaining alert to my surroundings at all times?
  • Am I walking alone at night time?
  • Should I ask Security or someone else to accompany me if I am concerned for my safety after dark?
  • Have I told someone where I’m going and when I’ll be back?
  • Am I clear on where I need to go and how to get there?
  • Am I choosing the safest form of transport or well-lit pathway to get there?
  • Do I know who to call and what to do in the event of an emergency?
  • Is my personal property and cash safely secured?
