Safety GuidelinesWorksite safety, especially on a construction site, is everyone’s concern. SinceHabitat for Humanity work crews often have a high percentage of inexperienced volunteers, safety is of the utmost importance and must be paid attention to by everyone. Be aware at all times (of both yourself and others) and, if you do not know how to do something or are uncomfortable with a task, make sure to notify your crew leader; that is part of the reason that they are there. Please arrive on time for the morning safety talk.

It is the policy of Habitat for Humanity that children under the age of 16 are not allowed on Habitat for Humanity worksites while construction is in progress. It is further the policy of Habitat for Humanity that, while minors between the ages of 16 and 18 may be allowed to participate in construction work, using power tools, excavation, demolition, working on rooftops and similar activities are not permitted for anyone under the age of 18.
