time during the recovery process by preparing for the setback in advance. The exact timing of when a disaster will

occur is not always know in advance, but knowing that the disaster will occur

at some point will allow your company to be ready when the time comes. Once the event has occurred, it can be a

daunting task to begin the recovery process.

A Certified Industrial Hygienist can work with your company

to establish a Disaster and Flood Management plan to prepare your company. Preparations taken now will streamline the

recovery process and outline each step that needs to be taken along the

way. The Certified Industrial Hygienist

will visit your company to assess the potential obstacles that could be

faced. Each person will know their

responsibilities during and after a disaster or flood.

Floods can be particularly challenging as the damages is not

always superficial. Areas that have been

flooded should be inspected by the Certified Industrial Hygienist to determine

what needs to be removed to restore sanitary conditions. Often times, dry wall will absorb the water

and the insulation behind the drywall will absorb the water up the wall, higher

than the flood level. The insulation

will then hold the water within the walls similar to a sponge. If the insulation is not removed, mold may

begin to grow and cause more setbacks in the recovery process.

The Certified Industrial Hygienist can identify these

potential dangers and tailor a Disaster and Flood Management plan for your

company. Each plan will outline who will

be needed to be called in to help with the recovery efforts. The contacts will be established in advanced

so the team is ready to spring into action and decrease the recovery time

needed to restore operational conditions.

The longer your company takes to recover the more revenue that is lost

due to unfulfilled orders and the more money spent for the recovery process as

the facility continues to deteriorate.
