Safety gloves may be required during flood clean-upsPosted on 29/01/2010
Flood-hit employers in areas of Arizona and southern California should take steps to focus on the health and safety of their workers when attempting to rectify any water damage, it has been said.
Personal protective equipment, which might include safety gloves, should accompany any attempts to clean up business sites after flooding has occurred, Zurich has suggested.
The firm's business director for workers' compensation Clayton Shoup has noted the potential safety issues that may arise due to water damage.
He commented: 'Clean-up and recovery operations can also be dangerous, and steps must be taken to help protect workers from hazardous conditions.'
Meanwhile, Zurich has also noted that the tools that firms plan to make use of in their flood clean-up operations should not be faulty.
The North American branch of Zurich recently welcomed the large contributions to charity that many of its staff have made in recent months.
