Safety information

Safety on campus

Like most inner city areas, Fitzroy presents a range of challenges so we recommend the following approaches:

  • Avoid being on Campus alone at night
  • Travel with a colleague or in a group
  • Be alert and aware of your surroundings
  • Avoid dark, vacant or deserted areas; use well-lit, well-travelled routes
  • If your car is in the car park and you know you will be leaving after dark, try move your car to a safer place earlier in the day

If you sense you are in trouble:

  • Move away from the potential threat if possible
  • Join any group of people nearby; cross the street and increase your pace
  • If a threatening situation is imminent yell, scream or make a commotion in any way you can to get their attention
  • Go to an open business
  • Call the Police on 000 from a safe location
  • Make sure you let your manager know if an incident happens. We work closely with, and under the guidance of, the local police to try and ensure we take all reasonable steps to reduce risk and promote safety.

First Aid

There are first aid kits in every building on campus. Look for the green cross first aid signs.

We also have a number of staff on campus who are trained in first aid. If you come across an incident requiring first aid, please contact your nearest staff member.

Emergencies

In an emergency evacuation, don’t panic! Emergency and evacuation posters are on display in every building.

At all times during an emergency follow the instructions of the Building and Area Wardens.
If the evacuation alarm sounds, or if instructed to do so by a Warden, leave the building by the nearest and safest exit route.
If possible take hand held personal belongings (such as handbags and briefcases) with you when you leave. Do not return to collect belongings.
Walk quickly and calmly to the designated assembly area for your building or as advised by a Warden or Fire and Emergency Services personnel.
