What's the difference between risks, hazards, and danger? How do you start talking to your staff (coworkers, students) about safety? When should you document an incident that occurs in the library? What should follow up look like after an incident? These questions and more will be answered in this presentation.

While not an expert in safety or emergency preparedness, Sarah Creech is currently the Head of Circulation and Public Services at the Bozeman Public Library. Before pursuing librarianship as a full time career in 2016, she was a food scientist who developed freeze-dried backpacking meals for Mountain House. She hails from the east coast, a graduate of Cornell University in Ithaca, NY for undergraduate studies and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for her MLIS. She, along with her husband, has called Bozeman home for 6 years.
