10 Common Campus Hazard Situations

The outbreak of the Coronavirus has ravaged many countries of the world, with Croatia not excluded from the list of countries plagued with the virus. Medical associations have laid out COVID-19 guidelines to minimise the spread of the virus. Students should embrace the use of face masks and sanitizers in various school buildings such as the library and classrooms as a safety measure.

Active Landmines

After the Croatian war of independence ended, about 17,000 Landmines remained active. Several regions in Croatia still possess these unexploded mines. Students should watch out for warning signs indicating the existence of unexploded mines and avoid that route.

Mass Shooting

Croatia hardly experiences any case of terrorism or mass shooting. Since the Croatian war of independence came to an end in 1995, the rate of mass shootings and attacks has massively reduced.

Dark Areas

Poorly lit environments are usually susceptible to crime and accidents. In addition, dark places are usually perfect hiding spots for criminals to perpetuate their evil acts. It is advisable for students to never walk alone at night or in low-light environments. Always walk in groups of at least twos and threes on your way to a late-night class or lesson.

Mass Events

Talking to Strangers

Of course, college years are the perfect time to party and meet new people. But don't forget about safety measures. Do not go home to unfamiliar people and do not get into their car. If you meet someone on the Internet, then at first make appointments only in neutral territories, such as a park, cafe, cinema. And it is advisable to share the contacts of your new friend with friends and parents, just in case.

Swimming in Open Water
