Some safety tips for Tuesday:

  • There can still be debris on the ground, sidewalks, parking lots and streets.  Be careful where you walk and drive. This debris can present slipping and tripping hazards. Our pebbled sidewalks can be slippery when wet. You are encouraged to wear closed toed, flat shoes, with flexible soles your first day back just in case.
  • High water will drive critters (rodents, snakes, insects, ants, etc.) to higher ground, and they could be inside your building. Be careful when moving boxes or any item that a critter could be hiding in or under.
  • Do not touch or approach anything that looks like electrical or structural damage or wetness.
  • There could be fallen ceiling tiles in your area, do not attempt to move. Let Center Operations move all debris.
  • Report any odors or significant visual indications of mold/rot.
  • Report to the JSC Clinic for any potential injury or illness symptoms.
  • Hazardous Material Spills –avoid broken containers, knocked over gas cylinders, broken gas lines.
  • Chemical/Nitrogen Alarms- if you have an alarm that is sounding or the alarm is off, Do Not Enter. Call the Safety and Health Operations Center to come and clear area with a meter.
  • Notify your Facility Manager if you observe any concerns in your workplace, they should have a list of work orders/rooms that were cleaned or had issues. Normal work control systems will be in place, but good idea to talk to FM first if possible.
  • Remember to play it safe, especially if you suspect asbestos debris in your office area.
  • Good idea to start the day with a safety review, discuss any issues found, any workplace concerns. People have been working long hours and we need to be especially mindful of that.
