Keep in mind the following tips to keep you safe when you are shopping at Armada Dandenong Plaza.

Carpark Safety

Here are some useful tips to keep safe in carparks.

Remember to:

  • Use pedestrian crossings and footpaths
  • Watch for reversing vehicles
  • Hold hands with your little ones
  • Walk, don’t run
  • Return your trolley to the trolley bay
  • Look out for others who may need help

Loading Dock Safety

Loading Docks are an area of high risk and must only be used by authorized staff. To keep everyone safe:

  • Do not enter or exit the Centre via Loading Docks – use the Centre’s door entries instead.
  • No parking at the Loading Dock – it is not safe for your car and you can be fined.
  • Never drop anyone off at the Loading Dock – trucks and forklifts operate throughout the day and it is not safe for pedestrians.

Restricted Areas

Restricted Areas are areas in the Centre that are not safe for the general public. These are locked or blocked doors and signs are in place to restrict access to customers for your safety.

Escalator Safety

Here are some safety tips for when you are using an escalator or travellator.

  • Stand close to the Centre of the step and hold on to the hand rails
  • Step on and off safely by ensuring your shoes to not rub the brushes on the escalator/travellator to avoid getting your shoelaces or loose clothing stuck
  • Do not allow children to play on or near escalators/travellators
  • If you are pushing a trolley, pram of walking aid, or carrying large items, use the lifts instead.
