    FLOOD SAFETY TIPS

     

    With all the flooding we’ve experienced this past week, now is a good time to review with your employees the dangers flooding presents.

    Remind your employees that it only takes a mere six inches of fast-moving flood water to knock over an adult. It takes only two feet of rushing water to carry away most vehicles. This includes pickups and SUVs.

    Most flood-related deaths and injuries could be avoided if people who come upon areas covered with water followed this simple advice:

    Turn Around Don't Drown™.

    Play it smart, play it safe. Whether driving or walking, any time you come to a flooded road,
    TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN™!Turn Around Don't Drown™ NEVER drive through flooded roadways. Turn Around Don't Drown™

    Please visit Hawkeye Safety Website @

     

    Have

    a Safe Day!

     

    Return to top

     

    http://hawkeyeintranet/index.cfm?treeID=8778

    We encourage you and your employees to continuing working safely by following these simple safety guidelines:

    • Avoid areas already flooded, especially if the water is flowing fast. Do not attempt to cross flowing streams .
    • Road beds may be washed out under flood waters.

    During flood cleanup, employees, householders and volunteers often pitch in together. Look out for each other because the hazards may be new to those who are helping.
