Why Work Alone Program

Are you concerned about working alone in a classroom, a lab or an office at night, on weekends or on holidays?  If you are working alone Monday to Friday (between 6 pm and 7 am), or anytime on weekends or holidays, then you can call Security Services at 416-650-8000, or from your office phone at extension 58000, to request a periodic check-in. You will be asked to provide the following:

  • Your name.
  • Where you are working.
  • How long you will be working.
  • A phone number where you can be reached (if available).
  • If you would like security escort when you are finished.

The Security Services dispatcher will ask if you would like to be phoned hourly or visited periodically by Security Services personnel. If you do not respond to a telephone check-in, then Security Services personnel will attend the worksite to ensure that you are safe.
