You can learn about personal safety, workplace violence and help point out safety problems while on the Safety Walk during Campus Safety Awareness Month in September.
Activities during the month can help you take responsibility for your own safety:
- Get tips for staying safe, how to protect yourself and others from workplace violence and what to do in different emergency scenarios in programs planned on four Wednesday afternoons during September.
- Discuss safety issues with police and others at three faculty-staff brown bag lunches.
- Help make Clemson University safer at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, during the Campus Safety Walk. Tour the campus with students, faculty and staff to identify safety problems.
- Get your bicycle engraved with identification information during an open house at the Fire Department from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28. They’ll have refreshments too.
- Sign up to receive CU Safe Alerts on your cell phone at booths that will be in different locations on campus each Tuesday during the month.

Take advantage of these safety programs, which can help you learn ways not only to protect yourself, but your loved ones and other people you know.
“Safety is our No. 1 priority and we want everyone to sign up to receive CU Safe text messages and to participate in important events like the Safety Walk,” said Police Chief Johnson Link, who chairs the Safety Council. “This is your chance to help make Clemson University a safer place to learn, live and work.”
