Arriving or Leaving Work in Low Light Conditions

In the winter or when working later hours, it’s not uncommon to arrive or leave in the dark. These employees can be susceptible to safety issues or criminal attack. Employees often walk to their cars after work with things on their minds and fail to be alert by paying attention to their surroundings. While walking to a vehicle an employee should have a flashlight and be aware of what is happening around them and return to a safe place if uncomfortable. If possible, leave in groups and wear brightly colored clothing to improve visibility. Another consideration would be to carry items such as pepper spray, a whistle or battery powered personal alarm device, in addition to a  cell phone.  We escort many employees to their vehicles after hours, so call us if you need this service.
