Event Description

Reduce Threats to Personnel & Business Continuity

You may not think that the apartment business is a high-risk industry, but you are wrong. In fact, between 2003 and 2012, there were 51 annual workplace deaths reported in the housing industry. You, your staff, and your business face numerous threats—stalking, robbery, assault, false resident claims, animal attacks, data security breaches, identity theft, and more.

Learn how to reduce these very real risks and ensure your personal and professional safety in this information-packed webinar from housing industry expert Jo Becker. Learn what you and your personnel need to know to keep safe during all aspects of apartment community management and property maintenance—including strategies for conducting on-the-job safety training, planning for business continuity during an emergency, and setting sound electronic data protections for everyday communications.

After attending this instructive session, you will understand what you face: the common threats to individuals’ safety, gaps in your property’s security, and the potential liability your apartment building can be exposed to. More importantly, you’ll have the tools to evaluate your policies and procedures to guard against these risks. Plus, you’ll know how federal laws and regulations—including the Fair Housing Act (FHA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), landlord/tenant laws, general liability, and reasonable accommodation rules— impact your risk mitigation efforts.

Session Highlights

This instructive program will teach you to:

  • Identify safety and security risks to yourself, your staff, and your property
  • Minimize the risks to maintenance and leasing employees when they’re alone in occupied, model, and vacant units
  • Safeguard applicants’/residents’ information against identity theft
  • Protect electronic data and plan ahead for business continuity during an emergency
  • Identify the warning signs of an animal attack; aim for positive interactions with residents’ pets and assistance animals
  • Conduct personal-life-safety and on-the-job safety trainings
  • Understand your safety-related obligations under FHA, ADA, and other relevant laws and regulations
