For more information on storm/flood and hurricane response, consult the NIOSH website at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/emres/flood.html. This interim information is intended to assist employers and workers in preventing work-related injuries and illnesses during hurricane response. Additional information may be found in Tasks 1, 3, 6, 13 and 14 of the OSHA General Personal Protective Equipment Sampling Matrix found at: http://www.osha.gov/oilspills/oil_ppematrix.html Hurricane response activities can present a number of hazards for response workers. The 2010 hurricane season brings concerns about protecting emergency responders, debris removers and others from exposure to oil-contaminated waters as a result of the Deepwater Horizon fire, explosion and continuing oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
