September is REALTOR Safety Month

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 Berkshire County Board of 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. Here are the Top 5 Safety Action Items for REALTORS®:

  1. Plan Your Safety Strategy
  2. Tips and Best Practices
  3. Training Videos
  4. Personal Protection Resources
  5. Take the REALTOR® Safety Pledge

Additionally, please follow the link for details about NAR’s upcoming 2-part REALTOR® Safety Webinar on September 15th and September 16th.

Thank you for your dedication to REALTOR® Safety—this month and throughout the year. We look forward to expanding these efforts with you and each of our members.

Stay safe.
