Safety Message for Employees
As the weather gets warmer and we spend more time outdoors, all employees are encouraged to be aware of their personal safety in and around the Longwood Medical Area. BWH Security can provide an officer to escort you to any BWH parking garage or lot or local MBTA station. Call 617-732-6565 if you would like to take advantage of this service. As a general guideline, walk with others after dark, and keep your personal belongings close. It's also important to be aware of your surroundings and not to be distracted by talking on your cell phone or texting.
