With the weather warming up, BWH reminds employees not to prop open doors to suites and offices requiring badge access or doors leading outside of the hospital. Locked doors are alarmed, and any door held open for 15 seconds sends an alarm to Security. Security responds immediately to all door alarms. Please be sure to close and lock windows in your office or work area before leaving each night, especially if your work area is on the ground level.

Additionally, employees can request a Security escort to and from the Mission Park Garage at any time by calling 617-732-6565 or by stopping at the Security booth inside the garage. Staff are reminded to always be aware of their surroundings and maintain vigilance for personal safety.

Employees are encouraged to speak up about any concerns by telling a manager, calling Security at 617-732-6565 or emailing BWHSafety@partners.org.
