Talk to them about safety on the job, and tell them about the safety tools and op- tions available to them. Emphasize the importance of implementing safety protocols with every client, every day, every time. Beneficial Safety Resources To simplify and support brokers' efforts to educate agents about safety, NAR developed a wealth of materials, all compiled in one convenient location: NAR.realtor/safety.
