OSHA Hurricane Cleanup and Recovery Resources
Following the devastating impact of Hurricane IDA, we want to remind everyone that September is National Preparedness Month and that OSHA has an Emergency Preparedness and Response webpage that provides information to protect workers responding to hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, floods, and other natural disasters.
Attached is a document listing OSHA hurricane cleanup and recovery resources, which is also located on the OSHA webpage here:
Please note that the OSHA hurricane webpage also highlights COVID-19 hurricane preparedness and response resources, including the FEMA COVID-19 Pandemic Operational Guidance for the 2021 Hurricane Season.
NOTE: Individuals who sustain losses in impacted area can begin applying for assistance by registering online at www.disasterassistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). The website lists more than 70 types of available assistance from 17 federal agencies, including the Department of Labor, and allows individuals to both apply online and check the status of an application.
