The holiday season is prone to a rise in crimes of opportunity, and with the lower activity in the UBC Hospital campus. We would like to remind those of you working, to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious persons or activities.
As everyone plays a part in creating a safe workplace, please remember that Security Starts with You and you can protect your belongings and prevent crime with these basic tips:
- Never leave your valuables unattended or left out in plain sight. Keep your personal belongings, such as purse, wallet and keys, with you at all times or secure them in a locked drawer or closet.
- Ensure your work area/office is secure while unattended. Close and secure doors even if you’re only leaving for a few minutes.
- Ensure your photo ID is worn visible to others at all times. Never assume that a stranger in your area is staff and are authorized to be there.
- Report broken windows or doors that don’t lock properly. Avoid leaving doors and windows propped open when unattended. Do not label keys with names or personal information and immediately report lost or missing keys to your manager/Supervisor and Site Security.
Report Immediately to your Manager/supervisor and Site Security:
- All lost, damaged or stolen property
- If you witness any unusual activity or suspicious persons
- Any situation that makes you feel uncomfortable

Please note due to the decreased site activity, Paladin will be using the holiday and weekend schedule for locking the doors until full operations are back up and running on January 5th.
Have a safe Holiday season!
