Emphasize personal safety over protecting equipment. Good plans should not be so chaotic that employees break speeding laws or operate equipment unsafely. Make sure your plan spells out ways to immediately care for employees or others who get injured. Be sure to provide first-aid training and supplies. When planning for cleanup, ensure that employees and volunteers are aware of the risks and provide them with appropriate protective clothing such as masks, goggles, gloves, and boots. Floodwaters and the debris they leave behind are likely to be contaminated with bacteria and other hazardous materials. Talk with health and emergency management authorities about proper protective clothing. Be sure that people helping with the cleanup have updated tetanus shots.
