Safety is no accident! This month we're following closely with the National Association of REALTORS® Safety Month plan of bringing awareness to the importance of practicing safe standards for the well being of our agents and their clients alike.
REALTORS® face job-related risks every day! As most agents know, pursuing a career in real estate is exciting, fun, inspiring, and flexible. But like all good things, this industry comes with its own assortment of risks and hazards. 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 United Real Estate Partners dedicate September as Realtor® Safety Month. Our goal is to 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®:
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.
Thank you for your dedication to Realtor® Safety - this month and throughout the year! Safety is a healthy habit that could save your life. Remember to always be aware and keep alert!
