OSHA Unveils Flood and Tornado Cleanup/Recovery Web Page

June 23, 2008
For employers, employees

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) unveiled a new web page to assist employers and employees involved in cleanup and recovery activities.

The floods and tornadoes recovery page features links to more than 40 fact sheets and easy-reference QuickCards in both English and Spanish, easily accessible for downloading from the web. Hazards covered include downed electrical wires; chain saws; general contamination; and heat and sun.

The site also features links to public service announcements to inform employees about hazards related to cleanup and recovery. A link to an additional 29 individual task-and-operation-specific activity sheets helps evaluate hazards and provide guidance on reducing exposure during floodwater removal, utility restoration, and building assessment.
