Competency: Facilities

Sub-Category: Creates and maintains a healthy, safe
and environmentally responsible environment for library personnel and users


When we work in a library, we all have a common goal for
our patrons and for our library staff.that we have created a safe space and
place for all. And because of the rules, policies and procedures we have put
into place, we assume that we will be safe. We even tell ourselves "Nothing serious has ever occurred in or
around the area of our place of employment."


Yet, we hear of an incident occurring in the most
unexpected places, including public and academic libraries. Places that we at one
time, we believed that our loves ones would be safe. In this interactive and
informative webinar, we will look at how the basic knowledge of our facilities can
give us an upper hand before and if an incident were to occur.


Attendees will learn what to be aware of in their
facilities, including:


  • Location of fire extinguishers, First aid kits / AED

  • Emergency exits

  • Responding to emergency situation

  • General facility awareness

  • Understanding what is considered suspicious or not
