NAR President Chris Polychron is making safety on the job a paramount focus of the association with a variety of new resources for members. “REALTORS® are public figures in a sense and that means our profession involves risk. It’s up to each and every one of us to work together to eliminate that risk and stay safe. NAR is committed to helping with new classes and tools,” says Polychron.
NAR has expanded its resources on realtor.org/safety, including a rundown of safety apps for smartphones, office safety forms , a list of experts available for safety training, and a free, downloadable REALTOR® Safety Tips wallet card. In the works for 2015 are safety webinars, new videos, weekly safety tips shared via NAR’s social media accounts, and a tip-filled safety booklet. A safety course will be offered during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington in May.
