Habitat’s RV Care-A-Vanners looking for construction safety trainers


RVCareAVannersMary Vandeveld,
RV Care-A-Vanner Coordinator
for Habitat for Humanity sent an e-mail recruiting “Care-A-Vanners who may have had safety training in a previous job, are experienced on a construction site, have experience as educators, or who just have an interest in safety.”

She explained:  “the RV Care-A-Vanner program has partnered with HFHI’s U.S. Office of Construction Technology to provide Master Safety Trainers. Twenty Master Safety Trainers have been trained to date, but we need more.  OHSA has new regulations for residential construction and we are helping affiliates become educated in these new requirements through our Competent Person Safety Training Program.

“Anyone interested in becoming a Master Safety Trainer must attend our training course, which will be held March 30-April 3, 2015, in Americus, Georgia. RV sites will be provided during the training. The deadline to register for the training course is Jan. 1, 2015.

“After completing the course, Master Safety Trainers will be asked – though they will not be required – to teach four training sessions per year. They will also be provided with RV sites and a small expense reimbursement.

“This is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new program! We all know how important safety is and how badly our affiliates need help with their safety programs.

“Safe travels and thanks for all you are doing to end poverty housing.”

If you are interested in becoming a Master Safety Trainer, e-mail Mary Vandeveld at mvandeveld@habitat.org.
