Volunteering is a great way to spend your time helping a cause. But in order to really help the cause, you need to know how to volunteer safely.
Whether you are a regular volunteer, a board member, or someone who’s just here for the day, you should always take a few minutes to review safety procedures. We’ve provided these cards and videos to help you do that quickly and efficiently.
The FACTS: What you need to KNOW
THE ACTIONS: What you need to DO
Read each safety card that applies to the work you are doing, or use the QR code on the card to watch the videos.
Find and review the Safety Bulletin Board at your organization. It contains valuable information to prevent accidents and address any that occur.
Ask to see the Accident Prevention Program (APP) at your organization. The APP is a written document, required by law, that contains information about safety at your facility.
Talk with other volunteers about your plans to use what you’ve learned in your work.
