Safer After Sandy
Safer After Sandy – Hoboken’s Thomas Conner Elementary was hit hard by Superstorm Sandy. The preschoolers had to move to another building, causing a strain on the parents and the school district. But thanks to hard work by the school district, the children have returned to a safe environment. The NJ Work Environment Council (WEC) and half a dozen partner organizations providw free information and training about hazards after Sandy. The program is called Safer After Sandy. WEC is a coalition of community, environmental and union organization that for more than 25 years has helped protect NJ workers, families and communities. They deal with mold removal, and general cleanup. The educational materials and training focus on identifying hazards and employer responsibilities to prevent hazards and well as worker rights.
