Here are some tips:
Be aware of your surroundings and watch out for potential dangers. If you're ever in doubt, don't do anything illegal or put yourself at risk. Just walk away and contact a friend, family member, or emergency services.
Stay calm if something goes wrong, and don't panic. Panic can lead to irrational decision-making and make you more likely to fall victim to an attack or danger. Remain as still as possible if someone tries to hurt you, and don't resist if they grab or restrain you.
Don't carry large sums of money or critical personal belongings when working alone. Leave them at home or in a secure place where no one can reach them. Report any suspicious behaviour or anyone who seems to be acting in a threatening or harmful way to the police or your employer. Remember to keep yourself safe by using common sense when working in unfamiliar or dangerous areas. If you can't find a clear path, stick to well-lit pedestrian areas and avoid dark alleys or isolated spots. Finally, always use caution when communicating with people you don't know. Don't share personal information such as your address or phone number. If you do find yourself in an emergency, dial 999.
