OSHA, ISEA Team Up to Distribute Safety Equipment to Protect Hurricane Cleanup, Recovery Workers

Although the hurricanes are over, their impact continues with hazardous and unstable conditions for both residents, and cleanup and recovery workers. OSHA and the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) are teaming up to coordinate and distribute much-needed personal protective equipment to hurricane-affected areas in Texas and the Caribbean Basin, including Puerto Rico. “OSHA’s goal is to keep workers and volunteers safe while they perform cleanup and recovery operations, and the ISEA is an important partner in these efforts,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Loren Sweatt. Information on specific safety equipment and how to stay safe during storm cleanup and recovery can be found on OSHA’s Hurricane Preparedness and Response page, and on the ISEA Storm Cleanup: Safety Equipment Resource Center page.
