Security

With the holidays fast approaching, the opportunity for theft rises.

The following tips will help create a safe and secure environment for all:

  • Items of value should be left at home. Do not bring items of value or large sums of money to work.  Any fund raising money needs to be locked up at all times.
  • Work areas, particularly those unoccupied or isolated, should be locked even if you are leaving your work area for a short period of time. i.e. lunch, coffee breaks, photo copying.     
  • Lock up all personal valuables and equipment example: purses, wallets, cell phones, laptop computers, house and car keys.
  • Make sure that your purse, briefcase, gifts, pager, cell phone, laptop computer or other items of value are not left in plain view in your vehicle or work area.  This creates an invitation to potential criminals.
  • Ensure that all persons assigned to work in your area wear identification badges at all times.
  • Actual or potential breeches in security including lost keys, access cards, and HHS photo identification, need to be reported to security immediately.
  • Any suspicious persons or activity has to be immediately reported to Security Services. Suspicious activity includes anything that seems out of the ordinary for whatever reason.

All thefts are to be reported to Security Services.

  • McMaster Security x24281 or 88 from any university extension (for McMaster sites)
  • HHS Security x74444 (for all Hamilton Health Sciences sites)
  • St. Joseph’s Hospital x33280 – Switchboard (905) 522-1155 (for all St. Joseph’s sites)
