Handling cash: how to handle it safely

  • Please don’t leave unsecured cash unattended, and make sure you bank both cheques and cash as soon as possible
  • If you can’t bank cash immediately, put it in a safe or other secure place
  • You must make sure that all cash you have collected is counted and recorded by two unrelated people, wherever possible, and the counting should take place somewhere secure
