Tech No Chances – National Personal Safety Day 2012

National Personal Safety Day is coming up this year on the 8th of October. It is an annual event aimed at raising awareness of the simple, practical solutions that everyone can use to help avoid violence and aggression in today’s society. It’s all about helping people live safer, more confident lives. This year, NPSD is called ‘Tech No Chances’. Technology is a wonderful thing that few of us could see ourselves living without. When it comes to personal safety it can be of a great benefit: a teenager can text their parent to collect them when they are stranded; a pensioner can phone a friend if they have a problem and it makes staying in touch with our friends and family much easier. However, there can be risks associated with technology so this campaign will highlight some practical, common sense precautions people can use to ensure that their technology works for them, not against them. ‘Tech No Chances’ highlights dangers associated with wearing headphones, or using your mobile phone when it’s late or what information you submit online and how you can avoid putting yourself in the line of fire.
