FLOODING

AFTER A HURRICANE, DANGER OFTEN REMAINS - ESPECIALLY FOR RECOVERY AND CLEANUP WORKERS.

FLOODING CAN DISRUPT WATER PURIFICATION AND SEWAGE DISPOSAL SYSTEMS, CAUSE TOXIC WASTES TO OVERFLOW, AND FREE ABOVE-GROUND HAZARDOUS MATERIALS. DOWNED POWER LINES ALSO POSE SIGNIFICANT DANGER.

OSHA ADVISES WORKERS TO TAKE PROPER SAFETY AND HEALTH PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID INJURY. FOR MORE INFORMATION, CALL 1-800-321-OSHA OR VISIT WWW.OSHA.GOV.
