Domestic workers and gardeners are often left with the huge responsibility of caring for our homes. As such, it is important to educate them on what they can do to help protect themselves, our children and our belongings.
- Be aware of your surroundings. Keep the doors locked and unbarred windows closed.
- Do not open the gate or door unless it is safe to do so.
- Give her a remote panic button that she can put around her neck and use in case of emergency. It is also important to be sure that she knows where the panic buttons are in the house and knows when and how to use them.
- Nobody should be allowed into the property unless you the employer have told your domestic worker you are expecting someone, even if she thinks you know them or they look honest enough. She must rather call you to check first, you also need to remember to let her know someone is coming.
