Stop. Act. Assist.-Promoting a culture of accountability, safety, and security on campusOctober 25th, 2021 by Chelsea Wells
A common security breach on the Alaska Native Health Campus, called tailgating, is when an employee holds a door open to a secure location and allows an unauthorized individual to enter, or is simply not paying attention and does not realize that someone has followed them into a secure or restricted locations.
To address this campus-wide challenge, ANTHC is raising awareness of the dangers to staff, patients, visitors and property that can occur when employees are not aware
of others who may follow them into restricted or secure locations. We are introducing
“Stop. Act. Assist” in order to promote a culture of accountability, safety, and security on campus by empowering staff to enforce others to use their badge and deter others from following them into secure locations.
- Stop: Before going any further, pause and ensure that no one is following behind you into a secure area or a location requiring badge access.
- Act: Ask the employees(s) trying to follow behind you to badge in on the card reader, even if you have already opened the door using your badge. Ensure they have proper access. If the employee is unable to produce their badge direct them to Security or their supervisor for assistance.
- Assist: If the individual is not an employee, ask how you can assist them in getting where they need to go. If they are meeting someone or trying to get somewhere, walk them to the area. Or you can suggest they call Security to escort them to their destination.
If you are not comfortable doing the above, or if the person has forced their way into the locked area, you must call ANTHC Security immediately at 729-2915.
Be prepared to provide a detailed description of the person and their location. Employees are asked to remember that in this type of situation they should take one of two actions: Act and question the person themselves or contact ANTHC Security so they can do so.
