Posted July 11, 2019

Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta has recorded five new public service announcements (PSAs) discussing how to keep workers safe as they perform cleanup and recovery operations following hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes.

The 30-second audio messages, in English and Spanish, cover potential hazards posed by chainsaws, downed power lines, unstable surfaces, contaminated floodwaters, and mold exposure.

The PSAs, as well as other resources on storm recovery safety, can be found on OSHA's website.
