Some of the most dangerous and deadly jobs are those of workers performing waste pickup and disaster clean-up. The hazards are numerous, and workers doing this work need to be aware of the laws designed to protect them and best practices to do this type of work more safely.
The CSEA Clean-Up Safety App provides a quick reference to safety information and resources to help you stay safe and healthy during flooding and clean-up events both at home and on the job. Safety must remain a priority, especially in emergency situations. Each employer is responsible for the safety and health of its workers and for providing a safe and healthful workplace. Employers are required to protect workers from the anticipated hazards associated with the flood response and recovery operations that workers are likely to conduct.
