Personal Protective Equipment
SERVPRO of Saline County is a part of a storm team that contributes when a storm event happens in the United States. In some events, hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses are damaged. They could be damaged from flooding by the storms, which creates hazardous conditions for the homeowners as well as our employees.
That’s why OSHA requires cleanup and restoration companies to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This will reduce the risk of exposure to harmful bacterial or chemicals. Mold growth is also common in buildings following flooding.
So, our employees are required to wear a respirator to protect their lungs. The suits they wear are airtight and waterproof to protect them from the dangerous waters. Goggles are also required to protect them from debris they might be removing from the buildings.
