The National Association of Realtors will host a free webinar on Tuesday, June 3 at 3 p.m. Eastern to cover personal safety at work, home and when traveling. The number of real estate professionals killed on the job has risen, and while homicides are down some, other causes of death like falls and traffic accidents have increased, according to the latest figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

While rare, violence against real estate agents illustrates the dangers that real estate professionals face in showing homes to strangers, holding open houses for sellers, or meeting prospective clients for the first time. The webinar will discuss what an attacker looks for; how agents can minimize their chances of being attacked; why most crime is committed; and common sense personal safety techniques, NAR said.
