A: I am not sure what the nature of your job is, or what your job duties are that require you to be in such an area, but your employer is required to provide reasonable means to ensure your safety. You should speak to Human Resources or a supervisor about your safety concerns, and request that a reasonable accommodation be made to ensure your safety.
