Tips for Staying Safe at Work from the Santa Rosa Police

Be alert for pickpockets on crowded elevators.

Be aware of escape routes for emergencies and post the police and fire department numbers near telephones.

Don’t leave cash or valuables at the office.

If you are in an elevator with another person, stand near the control panel. if attacked, press the alarm and as many of the control buttons as possible.

If you work alone or before/after normal business hours, keep the office door locked.

If you work late, try to find another worker or a security guard to walk out with you.

Never leave your purse or billfold in plain view or in the pocket of a jacket hanging on a door.

Personal property should be marked with your Driver’s License number.

Report all suspicious persons and activities to the proper authorities (office manager, building security, law enforcement).
