Course Description

Home visits are conducted in client homes and typically done solo. Therefore, it is important that home visitors are prepared to protect themselves from potentially dangerous situations, and know how to diffuse, and get away from unsafe circumstances if needed. The safety of a home visitor is as important as the work they do. 

*This module contains all new content, so even if you’ve taken the home visitor safety training before, it is highly recommended that you complete this module as well. (Jan 2017)
