OD4-402 Safety in the Organizing Environment

Course Description
This course raises awareness of the many safety issues a professional organizer might encounter on the job and provides specific options for avoiding, eliminating, or mitigating these risks. Both personal and environmental safety are addressed, including client criminal activity, domestic violence, and personal assault; respiratory, contact, and ingestion dangers; risks associated with insects and animals; and emergencies and injuries related to lifting, exertion, individual limits, and temperature extremes. Enlightening and sometimes startling, this three-hour course prepares professional organizers to protect themselves, their staff members, and their clients.
