OSHA offers hurricane preparedness resources

Hurricane season began June 1, and it is crucial for employers and workers to prepare for weather-related emergencies and ensure they have the necessary equipment to stay safe when severe weather strikes.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Hurricane Preparedness and Response page provides information about creating evacuation plans and supply kits and reducing hazards for hurricane response and recovery work. For more information, visit www.osha.gov.

It also is important consumers know how to handle roof repairs after a hurricane hits. NRCA offers hurricane resources on its consumer website, www.everybodyneedsaroof.com.
