Safety Tips

Hurricane Season Is NOT Over!

Hurricane Season Is NOT Over!

Please continue to use safety precautions while you clean up from Irma and prepare your homes and businesses to weather the next storm.

We are committed to continuing protection of all workers involved in hurricane preparation, cleanup and recovery operations.  We recognize the strong ties that our partners and organizations have with local communities and appreciate your assistance in helping us reach everyone in affected areas. 

OSHA has a wealth of technical resources and products that contain critical safety and health information on expected hazards for cleanup and recovery workers including the OSHA Hurricane Preparedness, Response, and Recovery web page and the OSHA Flood Preparedness, Response, and Recovery web page.  To make it easier to find information by hazard or topic, OSHA has consolidated the key resources related to worker safety and health hazards and protective measures on these web pages and in the attached resource list.  In addition, the Secretary of Labor and OSHA have recorded audio public service announcements that are available on the DOL Hurricane Recovery Assistance Page.

We appreciate your assistance getting this information out to workers, employers, volunteers, and stakeholders.  Please share the web page links above and the attached resource list to everyone you know.  If you are providing hurricane response and recovery information on your web page, please feel free to link to the primary web pages listed above as well.
