Hurricane, Flood, and Tornado Recovery and Cleanup Safety Tips

- September 13, 2017 by Philip Bivens, CSP (View all posts by Philip)

Floods can cause extensive damage to property and equipment. The cleanup associated with floods can also pose dangers to employees that may not be aware of the risks. Since it is common for employees at all levels to assist with clean up operations, it is imperative to protect your workforce during this process.  It’s a good idea to conduct a hazard analysis for clean up operations since this is a non-routine task.  Cleaning up after a flood will have different hazards that your employees are used to.  A hazard analysis will help you identify all the potential hazards and concerns.

Texas Department of Insurance is a good resource to educate and train employees participating in clean up operations. For more information, please visit: http://www.tdi.texas.gov/pubs/videoresource/fshurricaneclea.pdf,
