Indoor Environmental Pollutants

An interagency indoor environmental pollutant workgroup developed guidance for employers and workers engaged in disaster recovery operations, focusing on demolition, clean-up, and rebuilding of damaged homes. Disaster recovery workers may encounter asbestos, lead, mold and radon at their work sites. The guidance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and OSHA provides information about these types of hazards and how to protect workers from exposure.

The SAMHSA Disaster Distress Helpline is a national hotline dedicated to providing year-round immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster.
