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:

  1. Take safety seriously.
  2. Make sure volunteers are trained. Utilize our free safety courses.
  3. Have ALL volunteers sign waivers annually.
  4. Always have a supervisor onsite when work is taking place.
  5. Review your policies and make sure you have all the coverage you need.
