OSHA Releases Statement In Advance of Hurricane Florence

Sep 14, 2018

Your work to assist those impacted by Hurricane Florence is vitally important to help communities recover after this storm. Under normal conditions electrical work can be hazardous. As you prepare to assist in restoration efforts, working safely is of paramount importance. Speed and fatigue are unseen hazards, be mindful of these and other hazards present in the days ahead. 

More than anything, we want you to be safe while you are helping others. OSHA has resources to help employers keep their workers safe when hurricanes and floods strike, and during cleanup and recovery operations. 

We are here to help. Our toll free number (800-321-6742) is available 24 hours a day.

Loren Sweatt, 
Acting Assistant Secretary, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
