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 loved 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 an emergency situation
  • General facility awareness
  • Understanding what is considered suspicious or not
