Parking Lot Safety

Purpose:

This Safe Work Practice (SWP) will provide YG employees with a set of guidelines or “Do’s and Don’ts” that have been developed to mitigate hazards associated with this work task, as identified through your workplace hazard identification process. All YG employees performing this work task are required to be trained, knowledgeable and competent.

Guidelines:

a)    Where possible park your vehicle where there is adequate lighting

b)    When leaving or entering the workplace, be aware of all activities around you (i.e., people, vehicles, bikes or animals)

c)    Try to have your keys ready for quick entry into either your car or your workplace

d)    When approaching your vehicle, quickly look for signs of problems (i.e., flat tires, vandalism)

e)    Enter vehicle, lock door immediately and keep the window up until you are underway

f)     If someone approaches the vehicle you don’t know, stay inside and lower the window just enough to speak to the person

g)    If using underground parking, be particularly vigilant getting into and out of your vehicle

h)   Should the vehicle not start leave it and return to your workplace to call for help. Do not linger in the parking lot or put the hood up

i)     Report any and all incidents in the parking lot immediately to your supervisor
