Phoenix, AZ, September 11, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Following the devastating flooding in southeast Texas and Louisiana, the safety experts at CertifyMe.net
have put together flood safety resources for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. In the midst of widespread home and building loss, storm victims don’t have to lose their lives or the lives of their loved ones, by understanding the top hazards to look out for and how to respond to the flooding safely.
As close followers of current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, CertifyMe.net follows OSHA guidelines for accident prevention in the workplace and natural disasters very carefully. They want nothing more than to stop additional preventable injuries and deaths from happening as a result of hurricane Harvey, and they encourage those affected to educate themselves on proper flood safety.
Here are two very important resources to read that outline the safest steps for dealing with a flood disaster:
1. OSHA’s steps for responding to and recovering from a flood - https://www.osha.gov/dts/weather/flood/response.html
2. OSHA’s guidelines for preparing for flood devastation and future floods - https://www.osha.gov/dts/weather/flood/preparedness.html
CertifyMe.net CEO and owner, Tom Wilkerson, says, “My heart goes out to all those affected by the catastrophic storms and flooding in southeast Texas. It’s so hard to imagine losing a home, pet, or loved one, but my mission is to help Harvey victims prevent more loss from happening with the most important flood safety precautions and guidelines. I strongly encourage all flood victims to read through these resources from OSHA on how to respond to and prepare for floods so they can safely and effectively get the care they need, respond to damage, and begin to piece their lives back together.”
