REALTORS® face job-related risks every day. Being aware of potential dangers and taking precautions will help you avoid risky situations. In an ongoing effort to keep safety top-of-mind for our members, the National Association of REALTORS® and the Greater Lehigh Valley REALTORS® dedicate September as REALTOR® Safety Month. The goal: Reduce the number of safety incidents that happen in the industry, so each of our members makes it home safely every night.
To accomplish this goal together with you, we must improve the Safety Culture in the industry by raising awareness, following safety protocols, and encouraging all REALTORS® to stay vigilant on the job. To get started, here are 5 Safety Action Items for REALTORS®:
- Plan Your Safety Strategy
- Tips and Best Practices
- Training Videos
- Personal Protection Resources
- Take the REALTOR® Safety Pledge
Additionally, you’ll see messages from us this month empowering you to take action with a variety of resources, including daily Safety Tips, and details about NAR’s upcoming REALTOR® Safety Webinar (September 22) and the Safety Webinar being offered by the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors® (September 13).
Thank you for your dedication to REALTOR® Safety—this month and throughout the year. Safety is a healthy habit that could save your life. Be aware. Keep alert.
