The Safe Buildings course is intended for anyone in the nonprofit sector. It’s especially valuable for members of the safety committee and those in a leadership role: board members, the executive director, program managers, volunteer coordinators, and supervisors.
You most likely do your work within a building. Often, nonprofit organizations work within old buildings. The wiring isn’t up to today’s code and the plumbing doesn’t always work the way it should. Your space may have been repurposed, say a church basement now serves as a food bank. You are forced to gerrymander workspaces in ways that may pose safety and health challenges. This resource is designed to help you create a workspace that is safe and healthy for the people working and the people you serve.
Through this module, you will learn how to:
- Identify building-related safety or health concerns that you can fix.
- Identify building-related safety or health concerns that you can’t fix but can mitigate against.
At the end of this course, you’ll take the Safe Buildings Quiz and get your Safe Buildings Certificate.
