When is Pokémon a No-Go?

I don’t want to ruin anyone’s fun, especially since Pokémon is getting people out into the world and exercising! But there are a few things to keep in mind for safety while getting your Pokémon on.

Since more than 75% of the population that participates in this game is of working age, let us start there. Do NOT do it at work! There are enough things at work that are hazardous; you don’t need to add careless and distracted workers into that combination.

Pokémon Go is being noticed by businesses in both good and bad ways.
Of course, getting injured off the job affects how you can do your work on the job. Even while participating in the game while away from work, keep safety at the top of your mind. People are literally falling off cliffs and getting hit by cars.

 It is great to have the break and get outside, but please do it safely:

  • Leave it for leisure time
  • Never turn the App on while driving!
  • Work in teams when you can - one navigator and one being the eyes and ears of the distracted
  • Predators thrive on the distracted - always be aware of your surroundings and leave valuable possessions at home
