GROUPS


 INCLEMENT WEATHER

Our construction crews work rain or shine! In extreme conditions, we would take local guidelines into consideration and may choose to close a construction site to protect the safety of staff and volunteers. If you have day-of questions regarding worksite safety, please contact volunteer@durhamhabitat.org or call our weather line at 919-682-0516 ext 7 or visit our Inclement Weather page for worksite updates.


 WORKSITE SAFETY

Our construction crews follow OSHA guidelines for all on-site work. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to participate on the worksite. Safety equipment and training is provided to volunteers prior to working with construction tools and ladders. If a volunteer finds they are uncomfortable with a task they should let a site supervisor know so they can be reassigned to other work.

We recommend new volunteers watch this Habitat worksite safety video prior to their first shift.

If you have any questions about on-site safety, please contact volunteer@durhamhabitat.org.
