Be alert for strangers or unfamiliar people, if your facility requires badges report it when you see someone without one. If you see a person who looks lost ask if you could help, the person maybe lost but could have sinister motive. Know the areas where you work and be aware when things look different. Are valves open that should be close? Is the machinery making a strange noise? Is the window or door unlock and open is usually shot? Are cord or equipment damage or out of place? Unusual situations may mean nothing but they also mean unauthorized person have been in your work area. If things in your area don’t seem right, they probably aren’t. Avoid touching a suspect item, cover or isolate it and report it immediately.
