    What should you do if you see a suspicious package?


    Slips, trips and falls can occur by chance, no matter the activity we are undertaking, and generally lead to minor injuries. Yet, there are other public issues that present severe risk of injury. This is true of incidents caused by a suspicious package.

    While you can never be certain of what is inside a suspicious package, you must act vigilantly and efficiently to help prevent accidents and injuries. After all, you may not be able to prevent all slips and trips, but reporting a suspicious package can save lives. It’’s better to be safe than sorry.

    What to do if you see a suspicious package

    First and foremost, when you are out and about, it is important to be attentive. Notice what is going on around you, so you are able to help and act assertively in the case of an emergency. Be on the lookout for suspicious packages, such as unattended cases, bags and envelopes.

    If you do spot a suspicious package, notify an authority immediately. Depending on where you are, this could be a security guard, manager, or the police, for example.

    Never check a suspicious package. You may be worried about wasting authority time, but you should never touch the item. Even though the item is harmless, you should not attempt to move it. Leave it to the authorities, who have had specialist training in dealing with suspicious packages.

    Claiming compensation for accidents in public

    If you have been involved in an accident in public, such as a trip, a slip, or something a little more severe, you may be able to claim compensation for the harm and distress you have experienced.

    When you are out and about, no matter where you are, management of establishments, parks, attractions, all have a legal responsibility to ensure your health and safety. If you are injured due to their negligence, they can be held liable for your injuries, as they have failed in their duty of care.
