Lone Worker Program

If you are working alone or in isolated circumstances where assistance would not be readily available in case of emergency, injury or illness, your supervisor can activate the Lone Worker Program for after-hours check in. If you miss a check-in, Campus Public Safety will send a patrol.

Please reach out to your supervisor to learn more about this program.
