About the walkabout audit:
"METRAC’s Safety Audit is a tool that is used by groups of people to assess the safety of their community. It is done from the perspective of those who live, work, and play there. The Audit uses a model that believes that people who live, work, study in or use an area are the “safety experts” in that area". (METRAC, 2012)
At the Campus Safety Audit Training is an interaction session, where you will learn how to conduct and lead a METRAC Safety Audit.
During the Campus Safety Audit Walkabout, you will be assessing the level of pshyical safety (i.e. lighting, signage, maintenance, etc) aroud the area and we as how safe a space makes an indvidual feels. This will take about 2 hours and a survey will be completed at the end of the walkabout.
If you are interested in attending any of these activities please RSVP by sending participant names and times you would be interested in participating to firstname.lastname@example.org
