Campus Safety Awareness Month Continues with Sept. 30 Luncheon

Campus Safety Awareness Month at Case Western Reserve University continues with a special luncheon, "Safe@Case," from noon to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 30, in Adelbert Hall's Toepfer Room.

Jason Goodrick, associate director for emergency management, police and security services, said as employees continue to become acclimated to the fall semester—and the everyday activities associated with work—topics such as safety might take a back seat to more pressing issues. However, he said it's important for everyone to either start or continue safe habits.

"Integrating safety habits into everyday routines initially takes forethought and practice. Eventually, little safety rituals that are rehearsed over time become second nature. This type of personal commitment can dramatically reduce the risk of becoming a victim of a crime or disaster."

"Safe@Case" is an opportunity for employees to hear about important safety topics related to campus such as emergency procedures, warning and notification, crime prevention, fire prevention and personal safety planning. Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with campus police and safety officials while learning tips for putting safety first at work.

The Employee Education, Training and Development Unit workshop is part of Case Western Reserve's inaugural Campus Safety Awareness Month, the university's way of marking three major September campaigns: National Campus Safety Month, Campus Fire Safety Month and Disaster Preparedness Month.

Lunch will be served at the event. Register online.
