Recovering from a Flood Disaster

In light of the 2017 flooding that has occurred in Texas, Louisiana, and Florida, many workers will be taking part in the cleanup and recovery operation.

Because cleanup work of any kind is hazardous, especially following massive flooding, we felt the need to assemble and disseminate some relevant information in order to keep workers safe.

Thus, we have assembled this FREE online course , which is meant to be an “awareness” course about the hazards associated with cleanup and recovery from a flooding disaster.

Additional, job-specific training is recommended for workers who will be involved in cleanup operations. This may include HAZWOPER, Hazmat, Incident Command System (ICS), or other training related to your role in cleanup. Ask your employer which courses are appropriate for you or feel free to contact us for more information.

Why is this Training Important?

Flooding can cause the disruption of water purification and sewage disposal systems, the overflowing of toxic waste sites, and the dislodgement of chemicals previously stored above ground.

Although most floods do not cause serious outbreaks of infectious disease or chemical poisonings, they can cause sickness in workers and others who come in contact with contaminated floodwater.

In addition, flooded areas may be subject to electrical or fire hazards connected with downed power lines.

What Other Training May be Needed?

Additional Training

EMTs require constant training and continuing education. While online training can assist in an EMTs training, receiving hands-on training is also important.

Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment an employer's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training that is supplied by his or her own companies. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

With regard to sexual harassment training, employees must be trained on the specific policies that apply to them.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
