    Katrina - By Jon Coppelman, Workers Comp Insider
    Unacceptable Risks
    We can assume that many of the rescue workers are employed. They may be covered by workers comp. They face ubiquitous and unprecedented exposures: fetid water covering everything; bodies floating along with oil, excrement and chemicals; no running water or toilets; a simmering rage among the desparate people they are trying to help. Toxic mold will be a constant risk in the coming months. If you follow the general duty of clause of OSHA literally -- as we are all supposed to do -- you cannot allow anyone to work, because under these horrendous conditions there is absolutely no way you can provide a safe workplace.
