Employee Safety Handbook posted

Whenever you take on a volunteer project at Mount Rainier National Park, your highest priority should always be safety. Your position description, supervision, training, and daily orientation should all address any hazards you might encounter on your job, with instructions for how to reduce risk to yourself and those around you. Make sure this is the case with every job you do for us! And if it's not safe, don't do it!

A good first step to ensure your safety is review Mount Rainier's 2011 Employee Safety Handbook. This document lays out our policies and procedures regarding safety, and is good information for any employee to know, including volunteer employees.

For future reference, a link to the Safety Handbook will occupy a prominent place in the list of resources in the right-hand column of this blog.

Happy reading, and be safe out there!
