Reminder – Campus Security & Campus Safety

Employees must wear their WUSM ID Badge on their outermost garment at all times. Protective Services remains fully staffed seven days a week across three shifts and continues to support all campus access, response, and security needs.

COMMUNITY SAFETY – BE A RESPONSIBLE MEMBER OF THE CAMPUS

To ensure the safety of all of our campus community members and neighbors, please remember universal masking is required on campus. We ask that you continue to maintain social distancing (6-feet from others), wash your hands frequently, and avoid touching your face. Please stay at home if you are sick.

CAMPUS SECURITY

For your safety and the safety of others, please do not prop open doors on campus. The safety and security of our internal spaces is a team effort. When adhered to judiciously, the result is a range of protections for our people and property. Keeping lab doors secure at all times ranks near the top of the list of best practices.  The benefits are many:

  • To ensure the proper pressurization of laboratory spaces and the safety of the research community.
  • Containment of fire, smoke or other potentially dangerous vapors
  • Prevention of unauthorized access by people who may not have the appropriate training to safely enter
  • Preservation of the integrity of crucial research
  • Reduction in the opportunity for theft or other crimes

Everyone has a stake and everyone can play a role.  Please don’t prop, shim or in any way attempt to defeat the mechanisms of your doors.  If you are having a problem securing a space, contact Protective Services at 314-362-4357.
Protective Services also asks for extra vigilance during this time. Please remember to pay attention to your surroundings at all times and report all suspicious persons or activity to 314-362-4357 immediately.

 

Please note:

For additional information, or if you have recently returned to campus, we encourage you to visit the OFMD website and view the guidelines set forth by the School of Medicine.

The Operations & Facilities Management Department encourages all staff, faculty, students, vendors, contractors and visitors to view the information and guidelines above.
