In recent months, a few Habitat affiliates have experienced serious claims, including one where a volunteer fell from an open second story because no fall protection was provided. Claims like these don’t result in just a few hundred thousand dollars. They result in millions. Protect your affiliate from serious claims with these tips:
- Take safety seriously.
- Make sure volunteers are trained. Utilize our free safety courses.
